Call for applications – AMA Future Leaders Program

8 Aug 2019

The AMA invites eligible members to apply for the AMA Future Leaders Program, to be held on 19 and 20 October 2019 at AMA House in Canberra. One of the roles of the AMA is to develop the future leaders of the medical profession. As such, Federal AMA runs an annual program for future leaders where successful applicants will learn about the intricacies of the Federal political process, the development of AMA policy, and working with media and political decision makers.

To be eligible, you must:

  • be a financial member of the AMA; and
  • have been in a leadership position within the last five years in a State AMA, or the Federal AMA.

Eligible previous leadership positions may include membership of an AMA committee or working group, an AMA board or council.

Applicants with a strong interest in the development of medico-political health policy and advocacy within the AMA are encouraged to apply.

Federal AMA will fund travel and accommodation for 12 attendees. Selection will be competitive against the criteria in the application.

An application can be downloaded here, and must be submitted to by 16 August 2019.
