2017 CAMA Annual Scientific and Educational Meeting in Greensboro, North Carolina concludes

The annual CAMA scientific meeting concluded with two panel discussions focused on complex aeromedical disposition cases and the status of FAA BasicMed. This concludes three information-filled days culminating in this year’s annual scientific and educational meeting.

Dr. Warren Silberman, an FAA employee working in the Education Division at the Civil Aerospace Medical Institute in Oklahoma City took over as CAMA President, succeeding Dr. Clay Cowl from Mayo Clinic who had served as President the prior two years. Dr. Gary Saboe, an Occupational Medicine and Aerospace Medicine specialist from San Antonio was named President-elect to begin his presidency in two years.

“This year’s meeting offered a wide range of topics and we are indebted to our FAA colleagues for offering outstanding updates to AMEs,” explained CAMA Immediate Past-President Dr. Cowl. “We look forward to continuing a run of well-organized, and well-attended annual meetings next year.”

CAMA plans to hosts its annual meeting in Anchorage, Alaska next fall.

The meeting this fall was approved for FAA Aviation Medical Examiner recurrency training credit, and also had both CME and MOC credits available.
