The Medical Parents of Australia & New Zealand (MPANZ) comprises over 5,000 doctors throughout Australia & New Zealand who are also parents. Our members are in every specialty in medicine from General Practice to specialist surgeons to public health physicians. Our association aims to support our members in the constant struggle to balance work, family, and their own needs. We particularly recognize that the medical profession places a unique stress on its members who are also parents or wanting to be parents. 

With a strong active presence in social media, MPANZ members are scattered throughout Australia & New Zealand and are keen to meet at last. We aim to continue the themes that bring us together - being parents, being doctors, being parents and doctors at the same time. With members from across the specialties, we aim to learn from each other and build strong networks.
