The course supplements the Basic and Advanced Training Course. The aspects of operational aviation medicine, occupational health care for flight crews, aviation psychology are broadened and depened, the knowledge of civil aviation is supplemented by aspects of military aviation. 

Another aspect is aviation medicine with respect to air traffic controllers. The training is complemented with a visit to a major European Air Control Centre and one of the busiest air traffic control towers in Europe. 

Major scopes of this course are travel medicine and air passenger health issues. Participants will earn the German Diploma for Travel Medicine by 32 hours of training within the course. The training encompasses Tropical Medicine, Immunology, Infectiology, Diving Medicine, Altitude and Mountaineering Medicine. Air Passenger Health Issues encompass the assessment of prospective passengers with concomitant diseases with respect to their flight travel fitness, the air transport of such passengers, management of medical emergencies on board an aircraft and repatriation of patients by air (medevac). There will be a hands-on training of half a day under life conditions. Another aspect is how the aviation industry deals when confronted with contagious diseases and a potential pandemic (e.g. SARS or Avian Influenza).
