Why join the New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists?
The New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists Inc (NZSA) is a membership-based society open to medical practitioners practising anaesthesia in New Zealand. It is the only organisation solely representing the interests of New Zealand anaesthetists and is the independent voice for New Zealand’s Anaesthetists. As a key frontline specialty, anaesthesia and anaesthetists are affected by changes at all levels of New Zealand’s health system. The NZSA works to ensure that your interests are represented by engaging with central government, DHBs, other professional bodies and, of course, the public.
