University of Otago

The diverse and industry-connected Occupational and Aviation Medicine international distance learning programme was established in 1987, initially with students in New Zealand, then Australia, and now worldwide. The programme recognises the needs of graduates and employers by developing a wide range of competencies to meet the demands of the highly specialised professions of occupational medicine, aviation medicine, and aeromedical retrieval and transport.

We offer a range of Masters degree programmes, ranging from our flagship Master of Aviation Medicine programme, to the specialised Master of Occupational Medicine, Master of Aeromedical Retrieval & Transport, and Master of Health Sciences (for allied health professionals) programmes that offer a wide range of choices in terms of taught and research papers.

 

Our Diploma in Occupational Medicine qualification is recognised as meeting the requirements for academic training specified by a number of professional bodies, including the Australasian Faculty of Occupational & Environmental Medicine, Faculty of Occupational Medicine, Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, Canadian Board of Occupational Medicine, and Hong Kong Medical Council.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Civil Aviation Medicine is an introductory one year programme for Aviation Medical Examiners worldwide and fulfils the International Civil Aviation Medicine training requirements. Our graduates qualify for admission to the more complex Class 1 European Aviation Safety Authority approvals programme.

 

Air ambulance and international assistance Medical Directors receive training in aeromedical retrieval and transport from Occupational & Aviation Medicine at Otago. We offer unique training opportunities for doctors wanting to become involved or upskilled in the field.
