Interest groups centred on disciplines that are not linked with any aspect of TEAP are referred to as Special Interest Groups (SIGs). All SIGs have two levels of engagement: Interest and Leadership.
Entry level into a Special Interest Group for all members or non-members (including students, registrars, physical scientists, engineers, or other medical or clinical professionals) who share an interest in the subject matter of the SIG.
Members may elect to be in the interest group for subjects beyond their scope or specialty.
For the sake of optimal and engaged participation and contribution, ACPSEM recommends joining no more than three Special Interest Groups.
The Leadership Committee is appointed by the Board of the ACPSEM. However, there may be opportunities from time to time when a vacancy arises. All Interest Group members are eligible to nominate to the Leadership Committee via an expression of interest process. Candidates are interviewed and selected by the Selection Panel.

You can join an Interest Group at any time via the SG SIG and Branches portal of "My ACPSEM" (you must login to access this area).

Leadership Committee members are nominated and elected from the Interest Group. If you are interested in joining the Leadership Committee for a Special Interest Group, please email your interest to the ACPSEM office at email@example.com.
