Aviation Medicine/Aerospace medicine is a medical specialty which combines aspects of preventive, occupational, environmental and clinical medicine withthe physiology and psychology of man in flight. It is concerned with the health and safety of those who fly, crew and passengers, as well as the selection and performance of those who hold aviation licenses.
