AMA submission to the Senate Inquiry into Fee deregulation

7 Oct 2014

The AMA has written to the Senate to voice its concerns about the impact on medicine from the Government’s decision to deregulate university fees and to reduce the subsidy for Commonwealth Supported Places by an average of 20 per cent. The AMA's position continues to be that the Commonwealth should be providing additional support for primary medical education, not less, and we do not see fee deregulation as a solution to funding problems.
