The Australian Chinese Medical Association Inc (ACMA) is a dynamic and responsible organisation comprised of medical practitioners who care about the health and wellbeing of the Australian Chinese community as well as the community at large. Whilst a large part of the Australian Chinese community has integrated well into the Australian society, a significant part of it is still disadvantaged through isolation as well as language and cultural barriers. Through the engagement of our members we strive to improve the lives of these people. We do this through radio broadcasts, Chinese language newspapers, healthcare fact sheets as well as public seminars. We also raise money to support charitable causes through the ACMA Charitable Trust.
We also offer our members a variety of social and professional events, providing an opportunity for like-minded individuals to make friends, create networks, and even find career paths. The highlight of our professional program are our monthly educational seminars and our annual conference. Through improving ourselves, we seek to improve the care we can give to others.
Our vision is to create a strong community of competent, caring and connected medical practitioners who can help, in the most effective way, those people most in need in society.
In addition to being a part of the community of people who are interested in the well-being of the Australian Chinese community, members have access to the following regular activities :
Our monthly education meetings cover a wide variety of topics. Dinner is included!
Our annual conference provides a perfect opportunity to meet overseas experts to broaden our horizons.
Regular sporting activities include weekly badminton and ballroom dancing. Other sporting activities also held on ad hoc basis.
We strongly encourage all members to get involved in our committees. Take a leadership position or learn a new skill!
We are a community of doctors from all different backgrounds with a vision to improve our effectiveness through continued education, health advocacy and effective networking. Join us!
