Medical practitioners, non-practicing practitioners (academics/postgraduate) and retired practitioners are eligible to become members of the AMA Tasmania. Australian Medical Association Tasmania provides a vital role in servicing the professional needs of medical practitioners throughout the state. By our constitution, we are also 'the' prime body in Tasmania representing the interests of our patients and the whole community on health issues.
Membership of AMA (TAS) is based on payment of an annual membership fee. The membership period is a calendar year. Payment by the month options are available except when certain services are required immediately upon joining. Where a service is required immediately, AMA TAS, in its absolute discretion, may require upfront payment of the annual membership fee, irrespective of when during the calendar year the application for membership is made.

The AMA is a federal organisation with state and territory branches.
It supports Australian doctors in a number of areas including industrial, social, and welfare issues.
Over many years, the AMA has become recognised as an important body representing all Australian doctors and has now developed networks with federal and state governments and other important organisations. As is evidenced by the significant influence the AMA has been able to exert on important issues including Aboriginal health and welfare, anti-smoking legislation, and rural matters.
Your annual membership is divided into federal and state parts.
In Tasmania, there have been significant efforts made to ensure that the state portion has not increased. State membership for Salaried Medical Practitioners also confers automatic membership of the state branch of the Australian Salaried Medical Officers Federation (ASMOF) and membership of Tasmanian Salaried Medical Practitioners Society (TSMPS). The Tasmanian State branch (Industrial Committee) has recently successfully negotiated with the state government in regards to the Award for Salaried Medical Officers.
AMA membership has direct benefits to you as an individual. Again, there are benefits at both federal and State levels.

There are many reasons to join the AMA as featured on this site, including a list of benefits from partner companies, a list of provider companies that supply services to members and discounts available.
But most of all being an AMA member means that you can have your say in matters of employment and in the health sector generally in Tasmania and Australia.
