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 represents 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.

Membership is open to registered medical practitioners who demonstrate a commitment to clinical practice, research, education and administration in geriatric medicine and allied specialties and to those undergoing training in these fields.

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.
