The Australasian Association of Nuclear Medicine Specialists (AANMS) is the peak body representing nuclear medicine and molecular imaging in Australia and New Zealand.

The Association was formerly known as the Australian and New Zealand Association of Physicians in Nuclear Medicine (ANZAPNM).

Ordinary Members of the AANMS must be actively practising nuclear medicine, and must be Fellows of either the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) or the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR).

The AANMS has a range of objectives that include:

  • promotion and advancement of the practice of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging
  • the development and delivery of practice and training site accreditation programs
  • research coordination
  • training and CPD program development
  • trainee support
  • referrer education
  • representation of the specialty at Commonwealth and State levels and close involvement in all matters concerning the sustainability of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging
  • liaison with a range of organisations such as ANSTO and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nuclear Medicine (ANZSNM).

In supporting quality nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, the AANMS’s Members and Fellows follow a Code of Conduct.

The AANMS is a not-for-profit organisation and is governed by a Board that is elected biannually by the membership. The Association’s Constitution can be viewed here.
