What is Occupational Medicine?

In brief, occupational medicine is concerned with the interaction between a person's health and their work.  [click the above link for more detail].

The Australian & New Zealand Society of Occupational Medicine (NZ) Incorporated (ANZSOM) is a professional organisation providing a discussion forum and representation for registered medical practitioners and others who are actively involved in, or who are interested in, Occupational Medicine. Members of ANZSOM include -  Medical Specialists; General Practitioners; and Salaried Doctors in employment-related public health practice (ie. ACC & Department of Labour).

We also now accept Associate Members - see "How to Join ANZSOM" on the left.

For any occupational or environmental medicine inquiries...

 ...ANZSOM can help you find an appropriate occupational medicine advisor. Go to the "Find a Consultant" tab on the left.
