Details :

Group Captain Syed Mohammed Osama Medical in his early career had served as Medical Officer at Air Force Station, Hakempet. He obtained his grading in general medicine in Feb 63 and was classified as a specialist in general medicine in 1968. Ever since his grading in medicine he has been working as a medical specialist in smaller and larger hospitals of Army and Air Force. He commanded 4 Air Force Hospital from Jan 68 to Oct 69. He has also been the head of a Med Division of the Base Hospital at Lucknow and has also served as an editor of the Journal of Aviation Medicine (India) since 1982, published by the Aero­medical Society of India. He was posted to Central Medical Establishment as Senior Adviser in Medicine on 21 Jul 80 and has also been the President of this Establishment.

While serving at Air Force Hospital Bangalore, he has been recognised by the Bangalore University as a Post­graduate teacher in medicine, and has been teaching postgraduate students of aviation medicine, and general medicine, in the Bangalore University, Air Force Hospital and the Institute of Aviation Medicine. He has to his credit original research work and has published more than 20 papers in various medical journals. He is now engaged in a Research Project in collaboration with Professor M.K. Bhatia of All India Institute of Medical Sciences for upgrading aircrew who are originally labelled as doubtful cases of heart diseases. As President of the Medical Board of AFCME he has brought a highly mature sense of professional judgment to bear on the decision of medical categorisation of service aircrew and ground duty officers serving with the Armed Forces and with Civil Aviation.

Group Captain Syed Mohammed Osama has, thus, rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
