Our directors of professional affairs

Our directors of professional affairs (DPAs) are all medically qualified and are fellows of the college/faculty.

They are part-time, and most have other work as specialist anaesthetists or specialist pain medicine physicians. They work with many business units in ANZCA and provide advice that is best given by someone with their specialised knowledge and expertise. 

While attached to a specific role, they can also be asked to work across departments if they have the relevant knowledge and expertise. The work they are asked to do requires accuracy, timely responses, knowledge of the practice and culture of anaesthesia and/or pain medicine and in-depth knowledge of current college strategy, regulations and policies.
