The membership year is annual, with membership dues being due for renewal at the end of December each year. Members may elect to pay annually or monthly (which can be done by automatic direct debit).
AMA membership is tax deductible and membership dues may be wholly or partly claimable against your Professional Development Allowance. Membership includes subscription to the Medical Journal of Australia and other resources and publications.
Medical practitioners undertaking academic appointments, on sabbatical, overseas, on parental leave, retired, or in special circumstances may be able to access special rates.
AMA(SA) members agree to observe the principles stated in the Declaration of Geneva, abide by the Rules and By-Laws of the AMA(SA) and the AMA Code of Ethics, together with the requirements of any other branch or division of the AMA to which they at the time belong.
