The AANMS (Australasian Association of Nuclear Medicine Specialists ) is the peak body representing nuclear medicine and molecular imaging in Australia and New Zealand. The Association was formerly known as the Australian and New Zealand Association of Physicians in Nuclear Medicine (ANZAPNM).

Ordinary Members of the AANMS must be actively practising nuclear medicine, and must be Fellows of either the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) or the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR).

The AANMS has a range of objectives that include: promotion and advancement of the practice of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, the development and delivery of practice and training site accreditation programs, research coordination, training and CPD program development, trainee support, referrer education, representation of the specialty at Commonwealth and State levels and close involvement in all matters concerning the sustainability of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, including liaison with a range of organisations such as ANSTO and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Nuclear Medicine (ANZSNM).

In supporting quality nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, the AANMS's Members and Fellows follow a Code of Conduct.

The AANMS is a not-for-profit organisation and is governed by a Board that is elected biannually by the membership. A copy of the Association's Constitution can be viewed here

Nuclear Medicine Training Sites for 2019 and 2020 (new)

The list of accredited training sites for 2019 can be found here.  The list of accredited training sites for 2020 can be found here.

Prospective trainees should check with the training committee, the Committee for Joint College Training in Nuclear Medicine (formerly known as the Joint Specialist Advisory Committee [JSAC]) in Nuclear Medicine of the RACP and the RANZCR to ensure that their proposed training site will meet their training requirements. The JCTC can be contacted via the RACP at nuclearmedicine[at]racp.edu.a


The ANZSNM's Requirements for PET Accreditation (Instrumentation & Radiation Safety) 2012, 2nd Edition, are available here.


Nuclear medicine specialists who intend to do training in positron emission tomography (PET) must ensure that they submit an application for prospective approval of their PET training to the Committee for Joint College Training (JCTC) in Nuclear Medicine of the RACP and the RANZCR.

All PET training must be prospectively approved by the JCTC in order for this training to be accredited. Following completion of accredited PET training, the nuclear medicine specialist must then apply for credentialling for PET in order that Medicare payments can be made to patients for PET services.

To enquire about prospective approval of PET training and obtain the relevant forms, please contact the RACP at NuclearMedicine[at]racp.edu.au or phone 02 8247 6279.

Following completion of PET training, specialists must also ensure they obtain credentialling for PET in order that Medicare payments can be made for their PET services. For PET credentialling queries, please see the following:
