Your AMACDT representing you at the WMA JDN

13 Oct 2020

Dr Hash Abdeen represented Australian doctors in training at the recent World Medical Association Junior Doctor Network meeting on the weekend. He spoke to the work the AMACDT has been doing to support doctors in training in Australia during the response to COVID-19.  

Of note, the impacts of COVID-19 are common across countries and include increased workload, exposure to disease, changes to the type work and work settings, decreased teaching / training, and changes to life plans with many Junior Doctor Network members being unable to travel home while working in countries other than their home or unable to start residency / fellowship training due to border closures, licensing restrictions, etc.
