The Master of Aviation Medicine (MAvMed) course is a totally taught Master's degree, based on core Aviation Medicine papers and papers offered for the Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Medicine (PGDipOccMed) or the Postgraduate Diploma in Aeromedical Retrieval and Transport (PGDipAeroRT). The degree is available only to registered medical practitioners, and students will usually be able to obtain a Postgraduate Diploma in either Occupational Medicine or Aeromedical Retrieval and Transport (or a certificate in each), which is awarded in addition to the MAvMed.
Students who wish to undertake a research based Masters degree should enrol for the Master of Health Sciences (MHealSc), endorsed in Aviation Medicine degree programme.
All Occupational and Aviation Medicine qualifications are available through Distance Learning.
