The Australian Medical Association (AMA) is the peak membership organisation representing over 27 000 doctors and many thousands of medical students around Australia. The AMA promotes and protects the professional interests of doctors and the healthcare needs of patients and communities. Advocacy and policy formation is primarily the function of AMA federal council. The federal council of the AMA consists of elected office holders and representatives from each of the state branches, including our own local AMA(SA).
Medical student membership of the AMA(SA) is free and the AMA is a highly supportive partner of the AMSS. The AMA(SA) also helps advocate alongside, or on behalf of, the AMSS on issues affecting medical students such as Internships and training places. The AMSS committee has an elected student representative that sits on the AMA(SA) committee and communicates between the two groups. If you wish to contact the current medical student representative on the AMA(SA), please email firstname.lastname@example.org
