Extra Information:

Unlike our previous CMEs, the first one of 2018 kicks off with a rather special "Medical Lock and Key" meets "Balderdash" event. On arrival, the event will be explained to you by one of our executive members at the front desk and your name gets recorded.  

1)  You will get a card with part of a medical term

2) You will be told to find the lock or key that matches that card

3) Once you find it you return to it the front desk and hand it in to one of our executive members

4) Each time you hand in the completed lock and key, your name goes into the draw for a prize and you will get a new lock or key and the game continues

5) There will be a bonus draw for those who know the meaning of word

The aim of the event is to encourage social interaction between new and old ACMA members, non-ACMA members, GPs and specialists.  We encourage current ACMA members to bring some fellow medical friends or colleagues to this new and exciting event. 

To sign up for this event, please contact membership@acma.org.nz.
