The AMA Council of Doctors in Training (AMACDT) is a council of the Federal AMA that advocates on issues of importance to doctors in training. The AMACDT has representaives from all state and territory AMAs and meets three times a year to discuss issues that affect doctors in training across Australia, from internship to fellowship. Major issues for AMACDT at the moment include our work on doctor health and wellbeing, the continued advocacy for safe working hours in medicine, a renewed push for flexible work arrangements across the country, support for Indigenous trainees and a fierce call for the protection of education and training conditions in the pre-vocational space.

Every successful profession needs a peak representative body to lead it forward, and in medicine that body is the AMA. Not the medical board. Not AHPRA. Not the medical defence organisations. It’s the AMA. So, what are you waiting for? Find your voice inside your AMA and inside your profession. Become a member today and get in touch with your State AMA doctor in training committees and subdivisions.
