Medical Education SIG

The Medical Education SIG was formed in 1999 by ANZCA fellows who wanted to advance medical education. In 2020, we had nearly 1200 members across Australia and New Zealand. 

Activities of the SIG include participation and leading the annual Combined SIG meeting, known for its relaxed and engaging experience as well as planning speakers, workshops and sessions at the ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting and Australian Society of Anaesthetists National Scientific Congress each year. Future plans include a chat forum and blogs.

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself." John Dewey
