Welcome to The New Zealand Society of Endocrinology

Members of our non-profit national Society represent a broad cross-section of students, scientists and clinicians who have an interest in any aspect of Endocrinology. 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.
  • 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.


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 MedSci Congress held as part of Queenstown Research Week is our annual biomedical meeting. Students (as well as established researchers) are encouraged to give oral talks in the NZSE MedSci sessions, including the Medi’ray Best Student Presentation Award prize session. Student travel awards are available, and the Emerging Researcher and Nancy Sirett awards and associated prize lectures are typically presented at this meeting. A Clinical Meeting is usually held every two years. The Ibbertson Clinical Endocrinology Award is presented at this meeting, and Endocrine Nurse or Student travel awards are available.
