The objective of this article is the description and attempt at systematization of Polish
aviation medicine studies. For over 60 years, I was involved in numerous research and
development studies that brought about the unprecedented growth of this scientifi c
discipline in Poland. In this article, I classifi ed my research interest into four main categories
to which appropriate commentaries were provided. Summarizing my research
activities, I point out to the needs and possibilities for further development.
