Free memberships for Trainees

NZSA membership is free for trainees, who still receive the same membership benefits as consultant anaesthetists. NZSA trainee members have the opportunity to see what the organisation offers, and the vast majority keep their membership going once they become consultants. The NZSA provides trainees with a strong voice through our two Trainee Representatives which sit on our Executive Committee. They raise issues and concerns relating to trainees and help inform our work in supporting trainees.
