Our mission is to enrich our medical education by exploring the frontiers of human health in space and extreme environments. We aim to learn about clinical implications of hypo and hyperbaric conditions, preparing us for a future where medicine extends beyond traditional boundaries. By engaging with ASRS and FAA crash reports in a grand rounds style, hosting interactive activities, and learning from special guest lecturers, our members will gain a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and advancements in aerospace medicine and extreme environments. Our goal is to foster a community of future physicians who are versatile and prepared to apply their medical expertise in any environment, whether on Earth or beyond.
