Aviation Medicine

Our Aviation Medicine department comprises three Aviation Medical Examiners, sometimes referred to as AMEs (Approved or Aviation Medical Examiners). AMEs are medical doctors who have been audited and approved to carry out special aviation medical examinations, such as those required by air traffic controllers, commercial pilots, private pilots and cabin crew.

Aviation Medical Examiners are certified to assess your fitness to fly or to work in safety critical positions in aviation. The aim of the aeromedical examiner is not to “fail” you but to help you perform safely and know how specific health conditions may impact on your ability to perform your tasks.

Our medical clinic in Jumeirah is a GCAA approved centre and has been conducting GCAA aviation medicals as per the regulatory requirements since 2001. As part of our services, we also conduct aviation medicals for various international aviation authorities (CASA, CAA/EASA and FAA). We also handle Sport Pilot / Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) Medicals.

We are confident that our Aviation Medicine department are of international standard and highly reputed. Our aviation team of doctors are very aware of the pressures and anxieties faced by airline staff so we make sure that medicals are carried out with the utmost personalised care and finalised in the shortest period of time possible. Exceeding customer satisfaction is our priority.

Testimonials

I have known Dr Ralph Joyce in a professional capacity at the GMC (mainly for aviation medical services) since the 1990's and have found him at all times to be very personable and professional.  I have often referred aviation colleagues to him and would do so again without hesitation.  Renewing your overseas aviation medical licence with him is certainly a lot easier than flying back home, plus he accepts recent tests carried out for your GCAA medical to save doing them again.  I could not recommend Dr Ralph Joyce at GMC more highly.

I have been using GMC Clinics for 6 years now for renewal of my foreign Aviation Medicals. Their Group Medical Director and Senior Aviation Medical Examiner, Dr Ralph Joyce, is licensed to renew EASA, FAA, and CASA Medicals at their Jumeirah Branch, with appointments readily available and competitively priced. I have always been extremely satisfied with the whole renewal process, with friendly and efficient Aviation Administrators, Reception and Nursing Staff. Dr Ralph Joyce is always available, is extremely knowledgeable regarding the requirements of the different Medicals, and is both skilled and personable throughout the renewal process. I have no hesitation in recommending GMC Clinics and Dr Ralph Joyce to my colleagues and friends in Emirates Airline and Fly Dubai.

- Guy Dixon, Captain A380, Emirates Airline

GMC Clinic is the best choice for aviation related visits. The staff is well trained, kind, and professional. They always greet you by name and take the time to ensure you are fully aware of all procedures you will endure. Scheduling appointments is very easy and you will receive a reminder the day prior to your appointment. Finally the office is very clean and bright. You never have to wait too long past tour appointment time to be seen.
