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.
A communication protocol for colleges and jurisdictions was approved by Health Ministers as part of the Ministerial Policy Direction 2023-1 – medical college accreditation of training sites . The protocol sets out the roles and responsibilities and expectations about communication regarding accreditation of training sites/posts in Australian public hospitals and health facilities.
