I'm an overseas doctor who has just started practising in New Zealand. Can I join the NZMA?
We welcome membership from overseas doctors who are registered to practise in NZ. If you are a member of your home country’s Medical Association, we are pleased to offer you six months’ free introductory membership to the NZMA. You should receive an invitation to join NZMA soon after you are registered in New Zealand; if you have not received this and would like to join the NZMA, please email Julie Hare or call 0800 65 61 61.
NZMA members can use OFX to transfer funds at no cost for transfers over NZ$250.

What is the NZMA membership subscription year?
Our membership subscription year runs from 1 October to 30 September. Each October you will be sent, via mail or email, a renewal letter and membership invoice.
To be eligible for the low income membership subscription, you must earn below $80,000 (gross) per annum, or work less than four sessions per week. To access this rate you will need to sign a low income declaration. If you think you may qualify for this rate, please email Julie Hare.
I think I'm being charged the wrong membership rate—how can I check?
If you think you are being charged the wrong rate, please contact Julie Hare. We base your membership subscription rate on the information you have provided for us when you became a member. If your situation changes (for example you obtain Fellowship and are employed as a consultant/GP; you reduce your hours and subsequently your income; or you retire or move overseas) please let us know so we can ensure you are on the correct rate, and keep our database up to date.
