Membership Benefits

The NZSA is a membership-based society for anaesthetists practising in New Zealand. We offer advocacy, education, and a strong anaesthesia community. The NZSA is the only organisation solely representing the interests of New Zealand anaesthetists on New Zealand specific issues.

Benefits to joining the NZSA:

  • As a member of your professional association, you will be supporting our commitment to your specialty, optimal patient safety and care, and our wider NZ health system. Your support will help us build a strong, connected anaesthesia society – especially through our sub-specialty networks.
  • You will be kept updated on current issues and news through our communication channels including our member publications (E-Zine and magazine), member emails and social media.
  • You’ll also have access to the Members Only section of the website, which has resources such as the Relative Value Guide and the Health and Safety Resource which covers requirements under the Health and Safety of Work Act 2015.
  • As a full member you also automatically receive a subscription to the Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Journal, an international journal publishing timely, peer reviewed articles associated with anaesthesia, intensive care medicine, and pain medicine.
  • Access to a free online mindfulness course inspired by modern, science-backed techniques, in partnership with Ovio
  • Financial benefits: Members receive a range of discounts for conferences (NZ and overseas), trainee courses, hotel chain accommodation and Koru Club membership
    Membership fees can be claimed back from your DHB as a work-related expense, so there are many reasons to join

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.
