Building a medical workforce for Australia's future

5 Dec 2013

The AMA this week released its Position Statement on Medical Workforce and Training 2013. AMA Vice President, Professor Geoffrey Dobb, said the AMA has spent considerable time, involving extensive discussion with stakeholders, to produce a comprehensive Position Statement to help guide the future development of medical workforce and training policies to improve community access to high quality medical care.

“The AMA believes there needs to be unprecedented cooperation and coordination – between all levels of government, and between all key medical training stakeholders – to build a highly trained medical workforce in appropriate numbers to serve the future health needs of the Australian community,” Professor Dobb said.
