Specialty Trainees of New Zealand



Contact: 03 745 9258

Specialty Trainees of NZ (STONZ)  is a union representing and advocating for all junior doctors, formed by a group of junior doctors in 2018. STONZ provides an alternative choice for any doctor who wants to manage their career and training pathway effectively. We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach, so if you’re considering a specialist career, you need a union that advocates with specialties in mind.
