33rd Annual Conference

Registrations now open!

Due to the difficulties Covid-19 and the outbreak the Delta variant have thrown up around planning for and organising large events, the 33rd Annual Conference of ASMS is being held virtually on Thursday 25 November. We are still planning a full AGM with an interesting line up of guest speakers. We hope as many as possible of you can attend – albeit on your screens.

The theme for this event is ‘Checking the pulse of our health system’.  The programme is yet to be confirmed.

The doctor artists exhibition will still run — and if you live outside Wellington you will be able to view the exhibits online. If lockdown levels permit we will look at a limited opening event, but this will be nothing like the usual pre-conference extravaganza many of you have enjoyed over the years.








To register for the conference please complete the form below.  If you do not receive a confirmation email please give us a call on 04 499 1271 or email Cassey van Riel, Support Services Administrator
