Naval Aerospace Medical Institute

Naval Aerospace Medical Institute Welcome to the official Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) page. This page is operated by the NAMI Public Affairs Team.

The sole Navy source for Aeromedical training at all levels, including Aerospace Medicine residency. NAMI trains more than 240 aeromedical providers, including Aerospace Medicine Technicians (NEC 8406) and all tegories of Aeromedical Officers. The U.S. Army sends their Aerospace Medicine residents through the Navy program. Several foreign military services; including Germany, France, Israel, Canada, Norway and the Netherlands, choose to send their physicians to our Aeromedical Officer training program. NAMI is truly an internationally recognized Center of Excellence. NAMI is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Council on Occupational Education as a Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (MED-05) branch campus and annually trains over 400 U.S. and international students in aerospace fields as varied as primary aerospace medicine, aerospace physiology, aviation experimental psychology, aviation optometry, and aviation physical examination technicians. The Naval Aerospace Medical Institute Directorate represents the cutting edge of Aerospace Technology. On 19 January 1970, the Laboratory was designated a component command of the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute, under an Officer-in-Charge, and a modification was made in the mission of the Institute. Effective 1 July 1974, the Institute became a command directly under the newly formed Naval Health Sciences Education and Training Command. At the same time, the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory, a component of the Institute, became a separate command under the Naval Research and Development Command. On 1 April 1981, the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute became an Echelon Three Command, reporting directly to the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. At the time of the designation of the Institute as an Echelon Three Command, a new and broadened mission was assigned as follows: "To provide professional and technical support and consultative services in operationally related Fleet and Fleet Marine Force medical matters worldwide; to conduct education and training programs for Medical Department personnel in the various operational medical disciplines; and to manage, coordinate, and provide selected operational programs and services in support of the Operating Forces as directed by higher authority." On 7 December 1992, the Secretary of the Navy authorized the official name of the Institute to be changed on the Naval Aerospace Operational Medical Institute. This name change was authorized to reflect more accurately the mission and functions of the Command as a resource serving all naval warfare specialty communities. On 17 December 1996, the Bureau of Medicine and Surgery authorized the Naval Aerospace Operational Medical Institute (NAOMI) to change its name to Naval Operational Medicine Institute (NOMI). The new name more accurately represents the vision and daily actions of this command which now reach far beyond the aviation origins of the Institute. Additionally, the new name equitably distributes NOMI training and consultative services for all warfare communities. NAMI's responsibilities are huge in scope but very focused. Simply put, we make sure that Medical Personnel receive the best possible training in all fields of Aerospace Medicine can be, and determine that a person is best qualified for their task. NAMI reviews or conducts aviation physical examinations on all U.S. Navy and Marine Corps aviation candidates. In addition all flight physicals requiring submission, i.e. every five years or as dictated by a waiver of physical standards, are reviewed by NAMI Code 342 to ensure safety of flight and compliance with physical standards. NAMI provides recommendations for BUMED Aeromedical policy through the Aeromedical Advisory Council. Unique cases are considered by the Special Board of Flight Surgeons. NAMI provides support for Naval Hospital Pensacola through direct activity of all NAMI providers in NHP facilities. In addition, NAMI provides for the administration of Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment for NHP referrals, resulting in major savings in network referral costs. NAMI Code 342 Operational Psychology develops and maintains the Aviation Selection Test Battery, employed by Chief of Naval Aviation Training and Navy Recruiting Command, to optimize selection of aviation candidates and minimize attrition. Modifications, including the development and implementation of web‐based technology (APEX) for administration of the ASTB and reporting of test results are estimated to have saved over two million dollars to date. Continued activity in the development of performance based measures will further enhance the effectiveness of the ASTB.

Mission: To support Navy and Marine Corps aviation units through expert aeromedical consultation, services development and application of aeromedical standards and training of aeromedical personnel for operational assignments.

UPDATE (and edited below):

"For members currently on waiver for CRS (PRK/LASIK), nothing is required at this time. At the member's required re-submission year (typically every 5 years), AMOs can request the removal of the waiver in conjunction with the flight physical submission by submitting an electronic AMS in AERO requesting the removal. Please do not submit removal requests prior to the required re-submission year as this is really an administrative change hidden to the aviator, and this extra workload will bog down the system for new waivers that need action taken."

Greetings from the NAMI Eye Department!

Aeromedical Reference and Waiver Guide (ARWG)website: http://www.med.navy.mil/sites/nmotc/nami/arwg/Pages/AeromedicalReferenceandWaiverGuide.aspx

Summary of ARWG CRS updates and policychanges for 2017:

* **MAJOR POLICY CHANGE**: Corneal Refractive Surgery (CRS) is now NCD (Not Considered Disqualifying) inside the refractive parameters outlined in the recently revised ARWG CRS chapter (12.15).

* Waivers may be considered on a case by case basis outside these parameters; local board of flight surgeons are no longer allowed.
* The CRS AMS template (http://www.med.navy.mil/sites/nmotc/nami/arwg/Pages/Forms.aspx) and laser op reports are still required to be submitted to NAMI in AERO by the Flight Surgeon or Aeromedical PA (APA) to confirm NCD/CD.
* The minimum times to start/resume flight duties for each procedure did not change (see ARWG 12.15).

* Aeromedical Officer (AMO) issues down chit for surgery after permission granted by member’s CO
* Member still required to keep scheduled follow ups with surgeon/optometrist
* AMO issues up chit after appropriate down time has been met and member has been cleared by ophthalmology or optometry
* Aside from not submitting a waiver request, the upfront process is essentially unchanged with regard to submitting required paperwork/documentation, follow-ups and down-time; however, the administrative tail has now been shortened as there will no longer be a waiver submission for routine cases, and thus no processing by NAMI and PERS, no waiting for approval, and no more periodic re-submissions.

* "For members currently on waiver for CRS (PRK/LASIK), nothing is required at this time. At the member's required re-submission year (typically every 5 years), AMOs can request the removal of the waiver in conjunction with the flight physical submission by submitting an electronic AMS in AERO requesting the removal. Please do not submit removal requests prior to the required re-submission year as this is really an administrative change hidden to the aviator, and this extra workload will bog down the system for new waivers that need action taken."
* Refractive Lenticule Extraction (ReLEx) or Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SmILE) is a variant of LASIK with a much smaller, stronger, and more stable corneal incision. ReLEx/SmILE is considered LASIK with respect to CRS policy and aviation qualification parameters.
* Implantable Collamer Lenses (ICLs) are often used in cases of very high refractive error and/or when the cornea is too thin for surgical laser manipulation for vision correction. ICLs remain disqualifying in all classes of aviation personnel, but waivers may now be considered for applicants and designated members of Classes II, III, and IV. For Class I applicants and designated Class I aviators, waivers will still typically not be considered.
* ALL SECTIONS OF THE OPHTHALMOLOGY CHAPTER (12) HAVE BEEN UPDATED - PLEASE REFERENCE THE MOST CURRENT EDITION ONLINE NOW!
* BE SURE TO READ THE NEXT ISSUE OF "BONES" FOR SUMMARY DETAILS ABOUT ALL OF THE CHANGES!
