Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine

Since 2014, the Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine, with the support of the Airbus Foundation, has been organizing training courses in heliborne emergency medicine. These training courses enable doctors, nurses, paramedics, hospital and prehospital staff, civilians and military personnel from emerging countries to combine theoretical and practical learning by practicing, in particular, on real-life situations aboard helicopters.

Since the creation of this training program :

  • 10 training courses have been delivered in China, Mexico, India, Indonesia, Brazil and Thailand.

  • 500 people from airline and rescue companies, first-aid companies, the armed forces and the hospital sector have been trained.

Missions to Nepal, Indonesia and Brazil are already scheduled for 2023. Thanks to the creation of a scientific committee on June 20, the Foundation of the French Academy of Medicine will publish the first handbook guide dedicated exclusively to heliborne emergency medicine.

While consultation of this book is free, you can purchase the French version for 15 € (excluding shipping costs). The English version will be available for purchase from September 2023.
