Affiliate Membership

The International Academy of Aviation & Space Medicine is initiating a new level of Affiliate Membership. Affiliate Membership is suitable for

 (i) young doctors or scientists at an early stage in their careers


(ii) more senior individuals who have advanced in their careers in a different specialty or discipline and now have responsibilities that include aviation and space medicine. 

Both will be offered advice and support from the Academy and its Members.  One of the principle means by which this will be achieved is through a mentorship programme where Academicians will interact with and provide guidance to an Affiliate as they develop knowledge and skills in aviation and space medicine. 

Every Affiliate will have the opportunity of being assigned one or more mentors and may request a specific Academician as a mentor if mutually agreed.

Affiliates will be offered Affiliate Membership status for a limited period, up to 5 years. There is no automatic progression to Associate or Academician status and Affiliates have no voting rights in the Academy, nor can they hold elected office. It is hoped that many Affiliates will want to apply for Associate or Academician status in due course, subject to progression in the field of Aviation and Space Medicine.

The Application Form for Affiliate Membership can be found here. There is no application fee for Affiliate Membership.

The application process takes several weeks. Once you submit the Application Form it will be sent to the Chancellor who will distribute it to the Selectors Committee of the Academy for consideration; the Selectors will see all information you submit as part of your application including personal details such as your email address, your photo and your CV. If accepted as an Affiliate Member you will be informed that you have been successful by the Secretary General and your membership will commence upon payment of the annual Affiliate Dues, currently USD25 per year. The Affiliate Director will then contact you to discuss possible mentoring opportunities.
