Starting or Enhancing a Private Practice Seminar

We hope you can join us for this full-day seminar providing support, advice and information to consider when starting a private practice.

Following the seminar there will be an opportunity to network with fellow colleagues. 


Part 1 - Starting a Private Practice
Thinking about starting a private practice? Not sure where to start or who to talk to?

Join AMA Queensland’s Workplace Relations Team and network of trusted corporate partners who will step you through the logical pathways and processes to setting up your private practice.

These sessions will cover correct structuring, financial and funding issues, considerations for mitigating risk, along with staffing and compliance issues.

Part 2 – Owning a private practice: navigating the challenging landscape
You own your private practice – what issues are you facing?

Join our expert panellists for an afternoon of navigating the Medicare compliance landscape and how the wait for specialist mental health services is creating pressure for GPs and emergency departments.


These panel sessions will discuss:
•    case studies that highlight challenges faced by doctors complying with Medicare and,
•    the crush of mental health patients on our private practices and our hospital systems.


Please note: space is limited due to COVID-19 regulations.
