The Laryngology Society of Australasia (LSA) was formed to promote Laryngology in Australasia for Otolaryngologists, Speech Pathologists and Voice Scientists. The fundamental purpose is to hold meetings at which those interested in Laryngology can discuss clinical practice and present research papers.
The LSA was formed in 2012 with the aim of promoting excellence in Laryngology in Australia and New Zealand.
An overall interest is taken in the development of the speciality in Australia and New Zealand. The LSA provides a liaison with similar organisations internationally, especially through Asia and the Pacific region.
The society intends to hold a major meeting at least every 2 years, with the option to hold annual meetings or smaller meetings in conjunction with other groups as decided by the Committee.
