AMPA Proudly Announces The Publication Of Principles & Direction of Air Medical Transport, 2nd Edition

AMPA textbook cover

The AMPA board and your textbook editors are very excited to present the newest version of this Principles and Direction of Air Medical Transport, the most comprehensive collection of information on critical care air and ground transport medicine available today.

All Active AMPA members, and textbook authors, will received a complimentary electronic copy in the near future. A copy of the book, both soft cover and electronic format, can be ordered via the attached order form, however only the soft cover textbook is available at this time (June 2015)


Medical Director Core Curriculum

The Medical Director Core Curriculum is offered as a preconference to the annual Air Medical Transport Conference (AMTC). The AMPA Board of Trustees determined at the April 2003 Board meeting that offering a core curriculum process is relevant to the success of physicians managing critical care air and ground medical transport teams. The Core Curriculum is offered in three parts, which do not need to be taken consecutively, and covers topics in Principles and Direction of Air Medical Transport, a publication of AMPA. The sessions will be of interest to physicians just starting as medical directors, as well as those who are experienced. The preconference also offers an opportunity for physicians to network and presents a forum for interactive discussion.

The AMPA Medical Director Core Curriculum recognized and recommended by CAMTS as background training for a Medical Director of a critical care transport program that is applying for accreditation or undergoing reaccredidation.

Participant List

As of of November 2015, 131 Physicians have complete the three-part series. A list of participants is available in our downloads area.
