Fostering and promoting excellence in the health care of older persons in Australia and New Zealand

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. 

As a society the ANZSGM sets, promotes and continuously improves the standards of clinical practice in geriatrics throughout Australia and New Zealand. The Society is the chief advocacy group for the profession and aims to facilitate training, professional development and improve medical practice to enhance the quality of care for our patients. 

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. Our major functions are supporting education, policy development and review, and political advocacy. 

ANZSGM members represent the organisation on committees and advisory groups whose purpose is to shape the future of older people across Australia and New Zealand.
