Why Join the AMA?As Frances Mirabelli, CEO of AMA Victoria, explains: “The AMA remains the only organisation that represents the views of the whole profession. Individuals views are disparate, but all doctors want the best for their patients.”
By being a member of AMA, you are part of a broader medical community. You can actively influence change and improve your working conditions, reach better outcomes for your patients, and take control of your career. Our members come from all specialties, and are represented at all stages of their careers, bringing a diversity of views and experience and providing a valuable network.
If you are part of AMA you can influence and contribute to AMA Victoria and federal AMA policy development, and raise issues important to you and your colleagues for discussion with colleagues and debate within AMA, for example through Sections and Interest Groups and Subdivisions. The AMA has a powerful voice, and directly influences government decision-making. It advocates for better conditions for doctors, and their patients, across the whole of the health system.
You are also able to get assistance from our industrial relations and legal advisers, who are available to help you with advice and assistance with workplace relations, practice issues, contracts, harassment in the workplace and pay and leave entitlements or disputes.
If you are a member you can also enjoy many benefits, including direct free access to the expertise of AMA Victoria’s professional staff; significant savings on AMA Victoria seminars, programs and manuals; free attendance at AMA Victoria events; access to a wide range of commercial services and discounts; and automatic subscriptions to AMA journals and industry publications.
