The Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine is a Specialty Society representing medical practitioners who care for older people. We have over 1050 members, including consultant physicians, psychogeriatricians, academics, and more than 220 trainees in Geriatric Medicine. The Society formed in the early 1970’s as the Australian Geriatrics Society, later changed its name to the Australian Society for Geriatric Medicine, and amalgamated in 2006 with the New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine, to become the Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine (ANZSGM). Our Federal Council represents all Australian states and New Zealand, and our state divisions all have their own meetings and networks.
