Wright State University's program is the oldest civilian Aerospace Medicine
(ASM) training program in the United States. Since its inception in 1978, the program has graduated physicians from around the world. ASM is the preventive medicine specialty that promotes the health and functional well-being of pilots, astronauts and other flight crew members as well as all other people traveling in air or space. ASM physicians endeavor to discover, prevent and manage various adverse physiological responses of the normal healthy individual to the hostile aerospace environment, such as the effects of low barometric pressures and oxygen tension, rapid and sustained acceleration, short and long-term effects of microgravity, cosmic radiation and isolation.
