The ANZSGM engages with a network of partners and collaborators to support the work of geriatricians across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand through the delivery of professional development, training, and advocacy.
We aim to work with organisations who share in our mission to foster and promote excellence in health care of older persons in Australia and New Zealand. The Society welcomes collaborative opportunities with Government bodies, Non-Government Bodies (NGOs), education and research institutions.
