  Aerospace Medicine Primary is a three course series comprising the initial qualification training for USAF flight surgeons. It is a combination of didactic and laboratory experiences designed to prepare medical officers for basic mission qualification to perform duties in support of the USAF Aerospace Medicine Program.

The three segment course provides the student with knowledge and skills required for the treatment and proper aeromedical disposition of aircrew and special operations duty members. Specifically, the three segments of the AMP course are designed to introduce students to the unique aeromedical issues pertinent to the flight environment.

AMP 101 introduces the students to aeromedical standards, aerospace physiology, hyperbaric medicine, human performance sustainment, basic and military aviation fundamentals, emergency and operational aerospace medicine, and USAF weapon systems and associated missions.

AMP 201 emphasizes aeromedical standards, clinical aerospace medicine, PRP, duty-limiting conditions, Occupational Medicine, Public Health, and Bioenvironmental Engineering.

AMP 202 familiarizes the student with military aviation in the Aeromedical Aviation Laboratory and introduces the basics of aviation mishap investigation and prevention.
