  • education, training and assessment of trainees
  • education, continuing professional development and quality performance of Fellows
  • policy and advocacy
  • the assessment of overseas trained professionals
  • research
  • workforce

The AChSHM Committee is the peak decision-making body for the Chapter, promoting and advancing the body of knowledge of sexual health medicine within the College.
