About Our Department:
The Occupational and Environmental (OE) Health Department in the 711th Human Performance Wing’s U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM) executes its mission and vision to support the human weapon system through an interdependent, collaborative model.  Primary capabilities for this construct are formal education/training and subject matter expert consultation. The interaction between these pillars provides additional capabilities such as skills enhancement and verification, as well as data and knowledge management. An integral piece to these efforts are our partners (DoD OEH colleagues, AF Medical Readiness Agency) and stakeholders (MAJCOMs). This proactive integration allows delivery of world-class OEH products and skills to all levels of the Air Force enterprise.
