Welcome to the Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine (ANZSGM).


The Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine is the professional society for geriatricians and other medical practitioners with an interest in medical care of older people. The society acts to represent the needs of its members and the wider community in a bid to constantly review and improve the care of older people in Australia and New Zealand.
