Our National Advocacy spans eight priority areas as voted on by medical students. In 2021 those areas include: medical student mental health, bullying, discrimination and harassment in medicine, Indigenous health, gender equity for women, trans and gender diverse people, quality medical education and medical internships, climate change and health and promoting a sustainable training pipeline aligned to workforce demand. We work closely the Federal Government, the Department of Health, the Department of Education, the Medical Board of Australia (MBA), the Australian Medical Council (AMC), the Australian Medical Association (AMA), the Medical Colleges, University Medical Student Societies and State Medical Student Councils and the Australian Indigenous Doctors Association (AIDA) to achieve these ends.
AMSA produces resources, webinars, training modules and exam materials to support medical student learning across diverse areas of health. Please visit the pages of our committees for more information.
