AMACDT Chair podcast on becoming a medical leader

5 Aug 2020

AMACDT Chair Dr Hash Abdeen recently spoke to Junior Doctor's Corner about medical leadership and how to get involved. The discussion also covered plans to revamp the AMACDT structure to improve accessibility and flexibility for doctors in training to be involved in national AMA advocacy.

More than 40 expressions of interest (EOI) have been received from AMA DiT members across the country to sit on a range of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Advisory Committees (ACs) being established by AMACDT in the areas of wellbeing, prevocational and vocational training and industrial advocacy, general practice training and policy development.

“We encourage all doctors in training to get involved with medical leadership no matter what stage of training or prior experience. Our profession needs strong medical leaders into the future. We hope all DiTs will consider applying for these new leadership opportunities available with the AMACDT,” Dr Abdeen said.
