The Australasian College of Aerospace Medicine (ACAsM) will strive for national and international recognition as the body in Australasia responsible for training and credentialing specialists in aerospace medicine, and the body responsible for maintaining the high standards of aerospace medicine practiced by its Fellows and Members.
The Australasian College of Aerospace Medicine – its formation, its objectives and cornerstone activities, and its strategy to promote aerospace medicine as a clinical entity in Australasia – has been widely supported by major stakeholders of the aerospace medicine industry in Australia and New Zealand.
