The more member power we have behind us, the more effective we can be in advocating for your rights.

Your AMA Victoria membership also gives you membership of the Australian Salaried Medical Officers Federation (ASMOF), the union for doctors in Australia.*

Together we ensure your workplace conditions are maintained and improved by negotiating both the Doctors in Training and Specialists' enterprise agreements, provide advice on workplace entitlements, assist doctors who have issues with Medical Workforce and Payroll and provide advice and representation for doctors who are involved in performance processes, investigations or disciplinary procedures.

We encourage you to help us improve working conditions in public hospitals by talking to your non-member colleagues about joining AMA Victoria and ASMOF Victoria. 

Contact us now to become a workplace ambassador or be involved in the next round of enterprise bargaining.

If you’d like to assist doctors in distress by providing ongoing confidential practical support, express your interest in becoming a volunteer telephone counsellor for the Peer Support Service or Doctor Support service we provide. A staff member will discuss with you the training and roster requirements.

AMA Victoria also offers a peer visitor program to help to provide companionship to retired elderly doctors, who may be isolated or living in residential aged care.

AMA Victoria works hard to represent you, your interests, and your rights at work. Subdivision meetings are a way you can be involved and have your voice heard in the organisation.

As a member, you automatically enter two subdivisions: One based geographically on your location and another based vocationally on your area of expertise. 

Meetings are held regularly via Zoom, where you can contribute to discussions that actively shape public health policy, influence doctors’ work conditions, and improve the quality of patient care. You can find details about your subdivisions on top right-hand side menu of your AMA Victoria Nexus dashboard. 




We’re always posting exciting and relevant content for doctors, including our upcoming programs and events.

Please take two seconds to “like” AMA Victoria’s Facebook or LinkedIn page or follow us on Twitter and Instagram. Feel free to comment any time and ask any questions you may have.

Junior doctors can join ‘Doctors in Training Victoria’, a community Facebook group designed to provide news, insights and opinions around the issues faced by doctors in training.
