HISTORY OF SMSANZ
The Singapore Medical Society of Australia (SMSA) was established in 2012 by representatives from various Singapore Medical Societies across Australia, with the aim of bringing together a bona fide community of Singaporean medical students in Australia.
In 2015, SMSA was rebranded to form the Singapore Medical Society of Australia and New Zealand (SMSANZ) to reflect its inclusion of Singaporean medical students studying in New Zealand.
