NANZ – Who we are and what we do

NANZ was formed to promote the professional standards, delivery and profile of clinical neurology, neurosurgery and related disciplines such as neurophysiology and neuropsychiatry in NZ.

We serve members’ interests in matters of national importance relevant to these disciplines.

We hold an annual scientific meeting, AGM and social event, through a local organising committee, with sessions spread over two days, for members to present their work, with a guest speaker, usually from overseas, as in the first meeting.
