About the AMA Council of Doctors in Training

9 Jun 2016

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 (DiTs). The AMACDT has representatives from all State and Territory AMAs and regularly to discuss issues that affect DiTs across Australia, from internship to fellowship. Major issues for AMACDT at the moment include supporting DiTs during the COVID-19 pandemic, advoacting for the accreditation of all prevocational training places and the protection of education and training conditions in the pre-vocational space, equity of access to parental leave, and our work on doctor health and wellbeing

Every successful profession needs a peak representative body to lead it forward, and in medicine that body is the AMA. Find your voice inside your AMA and inside your profession. Become a member today and get in touch with your State and Territory AMA doctor in training committees and subdivisions.
