The Australian Medical Association (WA)
It was not until much later, in 1962, that the British Medical Association became the Australian Medical Association.
As the preeminent representative body for doctors and the healthcare system in general, the AMA has always had a strong view on the importance of further training and education pathways within health.
Then and Now
The Australian Medical Association (WA) Inc. (AMA) is an independent, not for profit, membership-based organisation, which was formed as the British Medical Association – Western Australia in 1898.
In 1945, the organisation was re-registered to its current name.
Today the AMA is a highly diversified business operating a highly regarded registered training organisation. The AMA is proud of the contribution it has made to healthcare, training and health leadership over the past 120 years, and looks forward to carrying this tradition forward into the future.
