4 Apr 2017

The AMA Position Statement on The role of the AMA in trainee disputes with Colleges – 2017 supports a high level, advocacy role for the Federal AMA in addressing systemic complaints, while confirming the role of the State AMAs to assist members with training/industrial matters/disputes on a one on one basis.

The AMA believes that Colleges are the appropriate bodies to oversee medical training and supports the AMA’s role is in the broader medico-political and industrial arena. State AMAs play a complementary and active role in assisting doctors in training who have a personal complaint in relation to either their training program or employment conditions.
