Health and Medicals

  • Health The World Health Organization (WHO) states, “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” In todays fast paced life, particularly the pilots traversing time zones in the course of their duties, have to cope up with their health concerns in their own ways. They adapt to working long hours in flight, prolonged stay in hotels away from the comforts of home, and its effect on their schedule of sleep and wakefulness, exercise and eating habits. Such hectic lifestyle has its impact on health, not just physical but also the psychological sense of well-being. AvMed.in provides holistic health counseling, including stress coping strategies, lifestyle management and spiritual health for those inclined. This consultation facility is available online. In case of need for personal psychological counseling by experienced aviation counsellors, the same can be arranged at some of the locations in India. For details, please contact us.
  • Periodic Medicals The periodicity of medical assessment is laid down as per Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). This may be a time of anxiety and worry for some pilots, especially those who have had borderline clearnaces on earlier occasions, say for overweight, lipid abnormalities or even fatty liver. AvMed.in offers post-medical assessment counseling. AvMed.in, based on your inputs, shall help you with planning for your next medical assessment so that you are in better shape to stay fit not only for your medicals but also remain safely ensconced in your professional career. AvMed.in also offers pre-medical assessment, say 4-6 weeks prior to your appointment for the next medical assessment. This consultation facility is available online. For details, please contact us.
  • Lifestyle Management for a healthy living and satisfying career in aviation is also offered by AvMed.in.
