Advocacy and Influence
AMA Victoria members have a unique opportunity to actively shape public health policy, influence doctors’ work conditions and improve the quality of patient care. This work is undertaken through our subdivisions, interest groups, government advisory groups, consultations, media and events.
Our experienced workplace relations advisors are just a phone call away to help guide you through any workplace issues. Members have access to workplace, industrial and employment assistance – whether in the public or private health sector. Importantly, AMA Victoria’s holistic approach to workplace relations issues always seeks to protect your professional relationships, your career and reputation.
Careers Support and Wellbeing
As an AMA Victoria member, your career is our priority. All members have access to a range of resources to support, discuss and develop their careers - no matter what stage they are at. AMA Victoria is also here to support the personal wellbeing of members through mentor programs, social events and information sessions, our Peer Support Service phone line, and more.
Events and networks
AMA Victoria members have the opportunity to network with doctors from across the profession through a range of events. Membership entitles all members to attend forums, workshops and regular meetings throughout the year to discuss shared issues of concern or interest. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our events will still be delivered in a virtual format.
