Our purpose, vision, and strategic plan

Our purpose and vision for the college inform our three-year strategic plan, which guides our college-wide business activity.  

Our purpose

Our purpose is "to serve our communities by leading high quality care in anaesthesia, perioperative and pain medicine, optimising health and reducing the burden of pain".

From this purpose flow three major objectives:

  1. To promote professional standards and patient safety in anaesthesia, perioperative medicine and pain medicine
  2. To promote education in anaesthesia, perioperative medicine and pain medicine.
  3. To advance the science and practice of anaesthesia, perioperative medicine and pain medicine.

Our vision

Our vision as a college is "to be a recognised world leader in training, education, research, and in setting standards for anaesthesia and pain medicine".

The Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM) has also developed its own vision, "to reduce the burden of pain on society through education, advocacy, training and research”.

ANZCA Strategic Plan 2023-2025

The three-year plan guides our college-wide business activity. It's the result of comprehensive consultation and engagement within the ANZCA community and beyond, including findings from the 2021 fellowship and trainee surveys; college plans; and an analysis of the 2018-2022 strategic plan.
