The Australian Medical Association (AMA) is the most influential membership organisation representing registered medical practitioners and medical students of Australia. The AMA exists to promote and protect the professional interests of doctors and the health care needs of patients and communities.
The AMA advocates on behalf of its members at the Federal, and State and Territory levels by:
- working with governments to increase and maintain provision of world class medical care to all Australians
- tracking and reporting government performance on health policy, financing and services
- challenging governments on policy that potentially harms the interests of patients
- leading the health policy debate by developing and promoting alternative policies to those government policies
- providing informed, expert medical commentary on health issues
- responding to issues in the health debate through provision of a wide range of expert resources
- commissioning and conducting research on health issues
