Members-to-be undergo a selection process and are elected solely for their merit on the subject, regardless of their nationality, race, creed, ideology or political belief. Candidates must be graduates from an accredited Medical School who have made an outstanding contribution to aerospace medicine and/or hold an eminent position in this special area and/or in the allied sciences thereof.
