AMA Family Doctor Week is the AMA’s annual celebration of the hard work and dedication of Australia’s GPs – local family doctors.


This year’s theme is Your Family Doctor and You: Partnering for Health.


AMA Family Doctor Week puts the spotlight on the important role played by GPs in local communities – cities, suburbs, towns, and remote areas – across Australia.


Each day between 21 and 27 July, the AMA will issue a media release highlighting the vital work undertaken by family doctors in keeping people healthy at every stage of life.


The highlight will be on Wednesday, 24 June, when Dr Bartone addresses the National Press Club in a nationally televised event.


If you are a GP and you would be interested in taking part in media interviews in your local area, please contact Karen Phillips Senior Policy, Media & Communications Advisor on 8361 0106
