Who We Are

ANZBMS is a professional medical / scientific society established in 1988 to bring together clinical and experimental scientists and physicians actively involved in the study of bone and mineral metabolism in Australia and New Zealand


The mission of the ANZBMS is to be the premier Australasian society in the field of bone and mineral metabolism through promoting excellence in bone and mineral research, fostering the integration of clinical and basic science, and facilitating the translation of our science to health care and clinical practice.

Key objectives to achieve these goals include the nurturing and development of the future generations of basic and clinical scientists, and the dissemination of new knowledge in bone and mineral metabolism through our Annual Scientific Meeting. The ANZBMS will be proactive in shaping research and health policies based on scientific advances in our field.

Aims & Goals

The aims and goals of the Society are:

  • To act as the principal professional body for scientists and clinicians involved in research and management of patients in the field of metabolic bone disease and mineral metabolism in Australia and New Zealand. 
  • To act as the premier forum for the presentation of research and debate about clinical and metabolic bone disease in Australia and New Zealand.
  • To advance the education of clinicians, allied health professionals and the public in the nature of and management of diseases impacting upon the skeleton.

Strategic Plan

The 2022-2025 ANZBMS Strategic Objectives outlined in the plan were developed as a result of an on-going review of the strategic objectives following evaluation and updating of the 2014-2018 Strategic Plan. Specific strategies for each objective are detailed, along with potential implementation mechanisms. They will be evaluated for feasibility and further developed or changed as needed over time.
