AMA (WA) 2016 Clinical Conference

AMA (WA) 2016 Clinical Conference

Wednesday 4 May 2016

Following the very successful 2015 conference to South Africa, the AMA (WA) is pleased to confirm that the 2016 AMA (WA) Clinical Conference will this year be held in Boston and Washington DC, with a post conference tour of New York.


The clinical component of the conference is well underway and is being developed in collaboration with the Harvard University Medical School.


The conference will take place from 8 October – 21 October, with four nights in Boston, three nights in Washington DC and an optional four nights in New York.


The formal part of the conference will be in Boston, although we are extending part of the clinical conference to include Washington DC. We fully expect that some of you may want to spend a few more days in NY or seek to travel to other destinations in the US.


For those who have travelled with the AMA before you will already know that our conferences are highly regarded and that there is a significant element of trust in what we do. Let the AMA look after the detail while you are accompanied by your colleagues and experience spectacular sightseeing combined with outstanding speakers from the Harvard Medical School.


BOSTON 7 –12 October. First stop is Boston staying five nights at the unique and beautiful Liberty Hotel. The five days are filled with conference sessions, the Freedom Trail, the Boston Tea Party, and a full day at Harvard Medical School, with lunch at the Harvard Faculty Club.


WASHINGTON DC 13-15 October. We fly from Boston to Washington and stay at the Willard International Hotel, located just opposite The White House. There is a conference session scheduled for Washington, and an evening with at the residence of His Excellency, the Australian Ambassador. We are currently waiting on confirmation of a visit to the White House during our stay in Washington, although it will be a busy time with the US Presidential election only three weeks away.


NEW YORK 16-20 October. We travel by relaxed train ride from Washington DC to New York and check into the celebrated Waldorf Astoria. Over the next four days your time will be filled with the many sites and wonders of New York. You are of course welcome to stay on and have a few more days in New York,  or travel to other destinations.


The AMA Tour Convenor (Event Travel Management) will again assist delegates throughout the tour to ensure that all you need to do is relax and enjoy the conference. Our customised tours are exclusive to the AMA group and we will be accompanied by expert guides. Your family is most welcome to join us for the Clinical Conference as well as the Post Conference activities.

Why I Joined the AMA (WA)...
"It is my hope that we can tackle the challenges our profession faces, united as one. If we dislike our working hours, our pay, gender inequality or low training opportunities, we can change these together. As a nurse in my previous life, I know that when a profession stands as one, people listen."
