New Zealand

AIMA has a long and vibrant history in New Zealand.  AIMA NZ is run by a New Zealand-based management committee under the auspices of AIMA Australia.  This committee is chaired by Integrative GP Dr. Tim Ewer.  We are currently working to constitute AIMA NZ as a separate legal entity.

Our New Zealand activities include a major conference in Auckland each year.  The conference is a highlight of the year for the New Zealand integrative medicine community and a fabulous occasion to learn the latest and to meet and socialize with colleagues.


Our 2023 AIMA Conference was held on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th of December 2023 at the Auckland University of Technology in central Auckland, New Zealand. It was the perfect opportunity to unite in person and soak in new knowledge and skills to bring back to our practices. The event not only rekindled our passion for integrative and wellness medicine but also showcased the vast possibilities it holds. Take a look at what was on offer here.


Our 2022 AIMA Conference took place on Friday 18th and Saturday 19th November 2022 and was a huge success! It was so wonderful to come back together in person after the pandemic, network and learn from a fantastic host of experts on topics around integrative medicine. Take a look at what was involved at the conference page.


For 2021, we successfully offered a fully virtual conference held over the weekend on 27-28 March entirely online.  This offered a safe and practical way to host the event during the COVID-19 pandemic, and also allowed us to extend our audience, introduce new and exciting ways to interact, and provide flexibility for those under COVID restrictions to participate.


We were extremely lucky to host our 2020 conference in person just before restrictions came into play as COVID-19 hit New Zealand. It was a huge success!

AIMA Auckland Meetings offer doctors, health practitioners and students the opportunity to chat and network with others in the integrative medicine community over light refreshments and a presentation on a topic of interest. The meetings are hosted in a central Auckland location and usually run from 7-8.30pm on a weekday evening. Watch this space for information about our next meeting!
