ANZAEC established the NZ Anaesthesia Visiting Lectureship in 2008 to promote sharing knowledge and experience through outstanding presentations among anaesthesia departments and practices.

Each year, heads of departments are invited to nominate members of staff who have given an outstanding presentation at a continuing medical education session and are willing to give their presentations at two regional centres in New Zealand the following year. ANZAEC help cover the travel and accommodation costs involved in making the visits.  

2022 - Virtual Lectureships

Due to the ongoing impact on Covid-19 on events, ANZAEC have decided to run the 2022 lectureships virtually. 

Nominations for Visiting Lectureships for 2022 are open now.
