ANZCA New Zealand National Committee

The New Zealand National Committee (NZNC) is responsible for activities similar to those of the Australian regional committees but also represents the college in dealing with national agencies such as the Ministry of Health and the Medical Council of New Zealand. In this respect, some of its functions mirror those of the ANZCA Council in Melbourne.

The committee advises the ANZCA Council on New Zealand issues, convenes continuing medical education events for Fellows, runs examination preparation courses for trainees and provides a forum for liaison between training hospitals and the college.
