Membership of AAME is open to medical and health professionals with an interest in aviation and space medicine.

Benefits of membership include
· Early registration and membership rates for our Annual Scientific Meeting
· Access to our GMC-approved Appraisal and Suitable Person services
· Networking and local AME peer support groups
· Access to the membership section and discussion forum of the AAME website
· Liaison with organisations relevant to AME practice
Suitable Person (SP) Service
Please note - access to the SP service is ONLY available to fully paid-up members of the AAME.
The AAME established an Appraisal and SP service in 2010 to cater for those members who work solely as an AME and who do not have a prescribed connection to any other GMC designated body. Our GMC-approved Suitable Person is Dr. Bruce Alexander, who (similar to a Responsible Officer), will review your appraisals annually and make a revalidation recommendation to the GMC every 5 years.
Annual appraisals can be a carried out with one of our six appraisers, led by our Appraiser Lead, Dr. Peter Munro. Fees for the annual appraisal are paid directly to the appraiser.
Further details on appraisal and the SP service can be found within the Members Section of the AAME website.
