Welcome to the Australian and New Zealand
Society for Geriatric Medicine

The Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine (ANZSGM) is the peak professional society for geriatricians and other medical practitioners with an interest in the medical care of older people.

 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 and professional development and improve medical practice to enhance the quality of care for our patients.

We  support  the needs of geriatricians in Australia and New Zealand  to help them provide the best possible care to older people. Our focus is on  education and policy development. We also advocate to government for improvement and innovation in aged care medical services and for the professional needs of geriatricians. 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.
