ASMS 30th Anniversary Conference

Date: June 27, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the formation of ASMS we will be holding a special commemorative conference on the theme of why a public health service is worth fighting for on Thursday 27 June in Wellington (Te Papa).

One of the world’s leading authorities on the operation of health systems, Professor Martin McKee, will give the keynote address to the conference. Professor McKee is from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

A second international speaker will be Dr Otmar Kloiber, Secretary General of the World Medical Association, who will speak on medical migration, in the context of the conference theme.

The Minister of Health Hon Dr David Clark will also address the conference.

More details of the event will be available soon. Branch delegates will be able to attend on the same basis as if it was the Annual Conference (including reimbursement of costs). If you are interested in forwarding an expression of interest, please contact ASMS Support Services Administrator Angela Randall at

This special conference should not be confused with the ASMS Annual Conference which will be held in Wellington on Thursday-Friday 28-29 November
