Students

Medical students are highly valued members of AMA Victoria. You are the next generation of doctors we will support and advocate for. As the principal voice advancing the Victorian medical profession and influencing policy makers, we wish to connect with you early in your career so we can represent you better in the future. We believe building a relationship with you from your first day of medical school is the best way to achieve this.

We understand the challenges and opportunities you face as a student. We know these can be different to those that present post-graduation. We work hard to support you to navigate these as you journey through medical school and transition to intern.

What's the difference between webinars, workshops, masterclasses and consultations? 


Webinars are online presentations designed to educate and inform. Inside the webinar, participants will listen to a presenter and view slides and other media – akin to a lecture.

Workshops are a more intensive group session designed to hone participants’ techniques and skills in a particular field. Workshops involves the participants’ active participation and application of skills, rather than solely listening to theory.

Masterclasses are a step up from webinars. This isn’t covering the basics. This is an opportunity to learn more and build on your already acquired knowledge of the area.

One-to-one (1:1) consultations are in-depth, personal discussions and tailored support relating to the participant’s individual needs. Consultations can be booked at time of convenience to you and are an opportunity to ask questions privately.
