Flight and Operational Medicine
We provide medical care for all military members and Department of Defense civilians on flying or special operational duty status. The Flight and Operational Medicine Office also serves other active duty members, including those assigned to various flying squadrons and center staff agencies, as well as our NATO partners. The unit conducts specialty physicals for Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Reserve service members, as well as occupational physicals for specific career fields, and provides support for NASA operations. The unit also supports all active duty members for operational health, including medical clearances, separation health physicals, profiles, deployments and preventive health assessments. Aerospace and Occupational Medicine also serves all federal civilian employees on Edwards Air Force Base; the medical staff evaluates, treats, and follows up with occupational injuries and illnesses and addresses occupational safety and health administration-related health standards on base.
