AMA Queensland VMO Committee

VMO Committee


AMA Queensland has reactivated the Visiting Medical Officer (VMO) Committee as of August 2020. The purpose of the VMO Committee is to determine issues relevant to VMO members and to:

a) report to AMA Queensland Council regarding those issues

b) report to AMA Queensland Board regarding those issues

c) advocate on behalf of VMOs regarding those issues.

We encourage anyone who would like to participate as a VMO committee member to connect with the secretariat. We want to ensure the committee is representative of as many specialties and as many hospitals as possible so please encourage as many people to apply.

As the current contracts for VMOs are to be reviewed by Queensland Health in 2021 it is vital that we hear the opinions and concerns of as many VMO members as possible. We currently have the support of ASMOFQ in undertaking this task.

Please contact AMA Queensland via Lisa O’Donnell email or phone 3872 2222.

Encourage other colleagues to contact us and raise any issues they wish us to address as a committee.
