The AMA (WA) is the largest independent professional organisation for medical practitioners and medical students in the State, representing doctors across the public and private sectors, ranging from residents and registrars through to specialists and general practitioners.

Why I joined AMA (WA) – Dr Nooshin Rasool

"I am a GP obstetrician who found myself in an unexpected and daunting situation involving hospital bureaucracy. The AMA (WA) have been a professional, readily contactable and invaluable source of support for me over the past 6 months. I am incredibly grateful for the advocacy for myself and my colleagues. I cannot recommend this organisation highly enough."

Why I joined AMA (WA) – Dr Michael Page

"I joined the AMA because it was the right thing to do. It provides strong leadership and public advocacy for the entire medical profession, with patients at the centre of its cause. No other organisation does this. Whatever our individual views, we are always stronger together, and better able to fulfil our ultimate aims for the good of the profession and the public that we serve."
