ABOUT US


AMA (WA)

The AMA (WA) is an independent, not for profit, member based organisation which, from its beginnings in 1898, has served and represented the medical profession at a collective and individual level, in addition to promoting the health interests of the Western Australian public.

While the AMA (WA) has enjoyed a long history of advancing public health, our drive to create a healthier community has led us to become a highly diversified business, providing a suite of training, recruitment and employment services. Our other services include: the provision of medical products, financial services, insurance brokerage, youth programs, training, recruitment and apprenticeship services.

“70,000 apprentices and trainees commenced since 1998”

Since 1998, the AMA (WA)’s apprenticeship and traineeship services have been delivered by AMA Apprenticeship & Traineeship Services (AMAATS), which has commenced nearly 70,000 apprentices and trainees across a range of industries during that period. The success of AMAATS has resulted from the delivery of timely, comprehensive and flexible support to current and prospective apprentices, trainees and employers. As a newly appointed Apprenticeship Network Provider (ANP), AMAATS will continue to deliver these and additional services to the people of Western Australia.

As part of AMA (WA)’s ongoing commitment to quality training and traineeships in health, medical and community services, we offer a number of Industry Scholarships to eligible trainees, particular those involved in delivering front-line services in mental health, aged care, home care, disability services and general practice.

“A strong focus on community youth programs”

The AMA (WA) is especially proud of its focus on youth programs, which include Dr YES and our Youth Friendly Doctor (YFD) training programs. These initiatives seek to address youth-related health issues that affect young Western Australians, and to increase awareness among medical professionals of the services available to adolescents experiencing hardship.

Patient care and public health remain high priorities to the AMA (WA), and we campaign tirelessly for the rights of patients, better public health services, guaranteed freedom of choice in the private system and the right to retain access to Australia’s high standards of medicine. Our campaigning on welfare issues affects a community of some 2.5 million patients across the state of Western Australia.
