ANZSOM members make up a multidisciplinary group of health professionals, including medical and nursing practitioners, who work in industry or manage patients with work-related illness or health problems which have an impact on their ability to work. ANZSOM provides numerous opportunities for networking to build your connections and exchange information and ideas on work-related health matters. The Annual Scientific Meeting is our main networking event, attracting around 150 delegates from around Australia and overseas. State Branch meetings also keep members connected at a local level.
The Branch meetings are conducted in each state, offering regular opportunities for education and networking. Our Branch Committees work hard to bring an interesting range of topics to the local membership and welcome your input. The Annual Scientific Meeting is a three day meeting which is hosted by the State Branches on a rotating basis. Renowned for their practice-oriented approach, the meetings provide a mix of learning opportunities including workshops and industry site visits. Membership entitles you to a significant discount on meeting registration fees.
A further benefit of membership is the ability to access online learning resources. These include presentations from past Annual Scientific Meetings and Branch meetings. Regular Learning Update communications inform members about the latest additions to the ANZSOM online resources and to resources available elsewhere.
Members receive quarterly e-newsletters and news updates with relevant items and events relating to their practice. The newsletter and website also feature information about career opportunities including job vacancies, courses and conferences. Members contributions are welcome.
The ANZSOM presence on social media is also growing and we encourage members to be part of the conversation and build your links within the field of occupational health.
Promote your expertise
The “Find a member” function on the ANZSOM website is a convenient way for people to access your expertise. Members have the opportunity to maintain their own public profile which can be searched by locality and area of expertise.
If you have a job vacancy, business sale or other classifieds, you can advertise at no cost on the ANZSOM webpage, in the newsletter, via e-marketing and through social media (LinkedIn and Facebook) to other members.
