Occupational Medicine Trainee opportunities
Trainees in occupational and environmental medicine are the future of our profession and we are pleased to offer discount membership to them as well as educational opportunities to complement their training. Recent developments include our NEW educational series - Occupational Medicine 101, as well as virtual site visits and the ANZSOM Journal Club.
ANZSOM also provides financial support for the Ramazzini Prize winner to attend our Annual Scientific Meeting in person and present their paper at the Kevin Sleigh Memorial Presentation.
Kevin Sleigh Memorial Presentation
The Kevin Sleigh Memorial Presentation was established in 2019 in honour of Dr Kevin Sleigh’s contribution to occupational medicine and his great support for doctors in training. It provides an opportunity for Ramazzini Prize recipients to present their work at the ANZSOM Annual Scientific Meeting.
Support for the Ramazinni Prize recipient to attend the ASM includes travel and accommodation for in-person attendance, as well as free registration for the day of the presentation.

Environmental medicine...the tasks ahead

Earning and recording CPD points
ANZSOM provides continual professional development opportunities via online learning resources, the Annual Scientific Meeting and state branch meetings. Generally these activities are not formally accredited with the Royal Australian College of Nursing, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners or Royal Australasian College of Physicians (AFOEM) however, you can claim CPD points for participation in non-accredited activities. Participation in ANZSOM Committees may also count towards CPD points.
Completion of ANZSOM CPD activities, including the ASM, Branch educational meetings, webinars and online learning modules, can be recorded in My Profile (CPD activity record).
