Aviation medicine is a unique field, and is concerned with the interaction between the aviation environment and human physiological and psychological systems. It is a specialised subset of the wider field of occupational medicine.
Our main emphasis is on understanding the implications of exposure to the flight environment on human performance. As such, we are fundamentally concerned with health consequences in pilots, aircrew and aircraft passengers.
