Consisting of doctors who do WorkCover, TAC and medico legal work, the Subcommittee meets on the first Wednesday of each alternate month at 7am.
Women in Medicine Special Interest Group
The Women in Medicine special interest group is an avenue for female doctors and medical students from across Victoria to network with colleagues and address issues of mutual concern. Women in Medicine group events regularly feature eminent female medical practitioners who talk about their careers in medicine.
If you would like to be involved in organising the Women in Medicine events, the group is always looking for volunteers to assist with:
- generating ideas for speakers;
- procuring sponsorship and prizes;
- assisting with the organisation on the day
Retired Doctors Special Interest Group
The Retired Doctors group meets regularly to discuss the needs of the sector and to establish social and networking opportunities for retired doctors. Social luncheons are held several times a year with topical guest speakers presenting on current and relevant issues affecting retired doctors.
Section of Psychiatry
The committee discusses current issues experienced by themselves or their colleagues working in the craft group at all levels. The Section is also called upon for feedback on important issues like the recent Mental Health Act. The committee is elected once a year at the annual AGM Dinner, but expressions of interest to attend meetings are welcome at any time.
AMA Victoria Heritage and Archives Committee
AMA Victoria holds an extensive archives collection, dating back to its earliest years of establishment, in the mid 19th Century. The AMA Victoria Heritage & Archives Committee was established in 2009 to oversee the Archives Management Program and associated projects. The archives currently held by AMA Victoria include records created by officers and staff of AMA Victoria, and records received from members, government officers, other organisations and members of the public.
The archives comprise:
- Books of record, such as agendas and minutes
- Legal records
- Photographic images, on paper and digital
- Video and audio tapes and digital recordings
The archives project team, which is made up of a small group of volunteers who have been working tirelessly on the cataloguing, archiving and conservation of historical records and memorabilia, are always looking for more volunteers.
