Welcome to The New Zealand Society of Endocrinology

Members of our Society represent a broad cross-section of individuals from diverse clinical and scientific backgrounds. Our overarching goal is to understand, diagnose, and treat endocrine conditions.

We aim to:

  • Provide a National Identity for clinical endocrinologists and the scientific community.
  • Provide a mechanism for interacting directly with regulatory bodies such as the Ministry of Health and Pharmac over clinical issues.
  • Foster collaborations between scientists, clinicians, and students from all corners of New Zealand.
  • Facilitate the exchange of information amongst members and communication with associated national and international organisations.
  • Support and mentor emerging scientists and clinicians, and recognise excellence in endocrine research and practice within New Zealand.


How do we do this?

  • We offer an annual scientific meeting and a biennial clinical meeting.
  • We offer travel awards for students and early career members.
  • We recognise achievements within the field of Endocrinology with awards.

We are a non-profit national Society composed of students, scientists, clinicians and other health practitioners who have an interest in any aspect of Endocrinology.


Membership of the NZSE is composed of a broad cross-section of individuals from diverse backgrounds. Endocrinology is an evolving field, integrating a wide variety of scientific and clinical disciplines with a central goal of understanding, diagnosing, and treating endocrine diseases.



The 2018 NZSE clinical case conference (Thursday 22nd – Friday 23rd November) is a little different. We’ve decided to concentrate on clinical endocrinology and training, by using a format of clinical case presentations. We will be providing a forum for Endocrine Trainees and SMOs to present challenging, interesting and informative cases which will stimulate lively discussion and interactive learning. Join us to be entertained and educated.

The 2018 MedSci Congress will be held 27-29 August at the Rydges Hotel as part of Queenstown Research Week. MedSci is New Zealand’s premier multi-disciplinary biomedical and medical sciences conference and incorporates the meetings of the Physiological Society of NZ and the NZ Society of Endocrinology.
