The Australian Medical Council is an organisation whose work impacts across the lands of Australia and New Zealand.
The Australian Medical Council acknowledges the Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the original Australians and the Māori People as the tangata whenua (Indigenous) Peoples of Aotearoa (New Zealand). We recognise them as the traditional custodians of knowledge for these lands.
We pay our respects to them and to their Elders, both past, present and emerging, and we recognise their enduring connection to the lands we live and work on, and honour their ongoing connection to those lands, its waters and sky.
The Australian Medical Council’s purpose is to ensure that the standards of education, training and assessment of the medical profession promote and protect the health of the Australian community.
The AMC Constitution is the key governing document, setting out the purpose and objectives of the organisation, membership composition, governances structures and how governance bodies make decisions.
The AMC’s Strategic Plan (2022-2028) is one of its key governing documents, defining the priorities needed to achieve its vision and communicating these to internal and external stakeholders.
The Strategic Plan focuses on strategic actions and projects to strengthen the relationship between the core business functions of standards development, accreditation and assessment and meeting community health needs.
The AMC’s activities over the financial year are captured in its Annual Report.
