Did you know that AMA (ACT) holds many events throughout the year supporting DIT’s and Students?
- every 6 weeks we hold a Council of Doctor in Training meetings which enables us to keep abreast of current issues facing the DIT’s.
- Four times a year, we host a free JMO lunch at Canberra Hospital.
- Early in the year we host a Student Welcome Drinks, providing students with an opportunity to meet with members of AMA (ACT) and to learn about our role and function.

On top of the brilliant opportunity to speak with students, AMA Tasmania was asked to present with a specific focus around the speciality training pathways as well as AMA Tasmania advocacy. AMA-TAS President Prof Dr. John Burgess as well as seasoned Emergency Physician Dr. Bryan Walpole delivered important outlines. The feedback received from the event indicated that the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves. One student we spoke to said, "The AMA set the tone for the night. I didn't realise that they were so involved in advocacy on behalf of doctors", definitely a direct result of the engaging presentation Dr. Burgess and Dr. Walpole delivered.
AMA Victoria’s historic constitution change.
May 2019 has been an historic month for AMA Victoria with the confirmation of a new constitution including a 40% gender quota on its now 7-member board. An overwhelming 96 per cent of members voted in favour for the changes at a Special General Meeting. A great change for better representation!
