About Us

The Australasian Association of Intraoperative Monitoring was formed and registered in June 2015 and is the Asia Pacific region's only association specifically for intraoperative monitoring.
We welcome and encourage all health professionals that have an interest in IONM to join AAIM and participate. Together we will grow this into an organisation to represent IONM.
