Perioperative medicine update: June 2023

20 June 2023

We've officially launched our Diploma of Perioperative Medicine (DipPOM) and we're well advanced in our plans to onboard hospitals across Australia and New Zealand.

These hospitals will be the early adopters of the program and pilot the clinical component of our first unit of study from 4 September.

More than 200 leaders in perioperative medicine have now applied for the diploma via the recognition pathways (“grandparenting”) process with 88 now awarded the DipPOM by our Recognition Pathways Working Group chaired by ANZCA Immediate Past President Dr Vanessa Beavis and another 24 have been submitted for approval. Applications for the recognition process close on 1 December 2023.
