Our director of professional affairs (DPA) assessor will:
- Confirm that you've completed all requirements of the vocational training program.
- Endorse your application.
- Determine the date of admission to fellowship.
The day after the confirmed completion date, we'll send your application to the ANZCA Executive Committee for consideration. Admissions to fellowship usually occur on the following Wednesday.
Once the ANZCA Executive Committee has approved your admission to fellowship, we'll email you a welcome pack containing a provisional certificate for fellowship. This can be used to notify the Australia Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) of your change in registration.
We'll post out your diploma within three months of receiving your entrance and annual membership fee.
To practise as a specialist in Australia or New Zealand, you will need to submit a registration form, application fee and original certified copy of the provisional certificate for fellowship directly to relevant regulatory body.
Australia New Zealand
If you're an Australian citizen or permanent resident, we will notify Medicare Australia of your admission as a specialist anaesthetist. Temporary residents, including New Zealand citizens, will need to make a written application to Medicare Australia. The form is available on the Medicare website.
College membership is a condition of fellowship and the use of the post-nominals FANZCA. It gives you access to an extensive range of resources and activities designed to support you at every stage in your career and help you meet your continuing professional development requirements.
Participating in a continuing professional development (CPD) program is compulsory for specialist registration in Australia and New Zealand. Access to our world-leading ANZCA and FPM CPD program is included in your ANZCA membership fees.
