The AMA Victoria Women in Medicine (WIM) Committee is delighted to accept applications for new committee positions.

It is the mission of the AMA Victoria WIM Committee to connect and support women in medicine to thrive in all aspects of their professional and personal lives through the creation of AMA Victoria events. We aim to develop a connected force of medical women to inspire and support each other. Our vision is to create gender equality within medicine.

The key values of the AMA Victoria WIM Committee are empowerment, compassion, respect and connection. Some specific interests of our committee include:

  • career advancement, mentoring and networking
  • work – life integration
  • discrimination, sexual harassment and gender inequality
  • parental leave and career disruption
  • mental wellbeing and health promotion

We are looking to recruit members of all career stages and medical backgrounds with a keen interest in women’s leadership and in events. We value diverse representation and our committee works closely as a team of friendly, enthusiastic and respectful women to promote our values through events, and we seek new members equally excited about cooperation and teamwork.

Please note this group is not a policy-making committee. It comes together to create events that support and connect women in medicine. 

Roles and responsibilities:

  • attendance of monthly evening meetings
  • regular communication and engagement with the committee through email
  • planning and attendance at our WIM events – including well-being workshops, parental leave entitlement workshops and inspiring women dinner series
