Space calls! Join a world-class Aerospace Medicine Residency Program for an out-of-this-world introductory course in Aviation and Space medicine in Houston*
Apply now for the 2019 opportunity
*ONLY open to physicians students enrolled on our International Diploma and MSc program at the University of Exeter Medical School.
(Not enrolled on our Diploma and MSc program? Don’t fret – WEM and UTMB are collaborating to provide more opportunities for 2020, so keep your eyes peeled for more information).
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join the University of Texas in Houston, Exeter University Medical School and World Extreme Medicine for a month of immersive learning with unparalleled access to Johnson Space Centre.
WEM has negotiated a limited number of places on the renown month-long ‘Principles of Space and Aviation Medicine’ course run by UTMB; a fantastic opportunity for anyone interested in the now GMC recognised speciality of Space Medicine
What more could you ask for? With unprecedented access to NASA’s Johnston Space Centre this opportunity enables a fully-immersed experience that will not only take you to Houston for a month but within the beating heart of space medicine; personally experience astronaut testing programmes, hypo- & hyperbaric chambers, in-flight countermeasures and the neutral buoyancy lab. Networking opportunities are included and will, of course, be out of this world.
The course is a month of intensive learning with several away days.
What we would expect of you: Mainly, to enjoy it! But we’d also need you to take notes and update us on the breakthroughs in space medicine (you’ll know before we do!). We’d also like you to take plenty of pictures, send some tweets and write a couple of reports on your return tagging both WEM and UEMS. If we’ve inspired you to pursue space medicine, then there’ll be plenty of opportunities with us in the coming years too.
Dates: From 24 June – 19 July. You are required to attend the full duration of the course.
Cost: The course costs $500 – $1500.
You will also have to add on accommodation for a month and flights to Houston but the PASM team will help you by introducing to other courses members so you can share accommodation, lifts etc
In the meantime, you may want to consider applying for a number of scholarships that are available in this subject area. https://www.asma.org/about-asma/careers/scholarships
