Our mission, vision, and strategic plan

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

Our mission

Our mission is "to serve the community by fostering safety and high quality patient care in anaesthesia, perioperative medicine and pain medicine".

From the mission 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.
