2008 AMC Report

The Australian Medical Council (AMC) has granted 4 years accreditation to The Royal Australasian College of Medical Administrators’ training program for specialist medical administrators after a comprehensive assessment of the College’s programs and processes.

The AMC expert team’s assessment included an extensive program of site visits, written stakeholder feedback and comprehensive documentation from the College.

The AMC report notes the Colleges’ commitment to reviewing and developing its education and training in medical administration and identifying training opportunities in both the private and public sector. The report comments on the major changes the College is making to its constitution, and its policies, procedures and processes. The report recommends the College further develop the competencies of the medical administrator and develop a more succinct statement about medical administration as a speciality and the key contribution trained medical administrators make to the quality and safety of modern health care delivery. The report also encourages the College to strategically position itself as a leading advocate and commentator on quality and sustainable health care leadership in Australasia.

The AMC team’s report is available for viewing by following the links below.
