Course Description

The aim of this programme is to provide graduates with advanced theoretical and practical training in the physiology, psychology and operational medicine of humans exposed to or working in the Space environment. The programme will include one to five day visits to external organisations where the students will be given lectures on, practical experience and demonstrations of relevant space phsiology stresses. Destinations may include the RAF Centre of Aviation Medicine, Qinetiq, European Space Research & Technology Centre and Cologne Sports University. DESCRIPTION The programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge, understanding and skills in the following areas: *detailed and in depth knowledge of the physiological effects of the space environment upon humans and of the methods employed to mitigate such effects. Provide practical experience in experimentation methods appropriate to investigate the *physiological effects of the space environment and those employed to mitigate such effects. A knowledge of instrumentation, calibration, data acquisition and the analysis of results whilst applying the appropriate statistical methods. *an understanding of the effect of the space environment upon human behaviour and performance. *a detailed knowledge of the practical implications of disease and physical deconditioning in space-faring humans and the practices required to counter and manage such events. *knowledge of the characteristics and practices associated with medical and life science research environments in space.
