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.

Lapsed Members:

Your subscription expired on 31 December... If you are still able to log in, but can no longer see the "Members-Only" pages, perhaps you did not read our November & December Newsletters and reminders. Oops, you are now officially a Lapsed Member and risk not receiving newsletters, because our mailing list is automated and relies on your action. Please help us!

  • To rejoin, please first LOG IN. That ensures you can at least see the Activate/Renew membership web page.
  • Go to that page and fill in your details.
  • Be sure also to pay your subscription for 2016 (the form tells you how)!

New Ordinary or Associate Members:

If you paid your 2016 sub around the time of the 2015 conference, and were welcomed as a new Member/Associate, perhaps you never Activated your membership? Failure to do that has dropped you off our automated mailing list, and our list of current website users...

  • Please LOG IN (as advised in a message we sent you).
  • Then go to the Activate/Renew membership web page and fill in your details.
  • You might also check with our Treasurer to ensure your payment was received. He will then remind the Webmaster to update your status.
