At a state level, AMA Victoria has been influential in shaping Government policy on health and as a result Victoria will receive 800 extra beds in hospitals to provide care for those who need it.

Our events…

Our events range from rural subdivision forums and special interest events including retired doctors’ luncheons, women in medicine sessions, medico legal seminars, expos and gala dinners.
