AMSA, the AMA and numerous other organisations have been lobbying the State and Federal Governments to act on the impending “Medical Student Tsunami” for many years. This has been a problem long foreseen but no one has acted until it is nearly too late.

We need a short term solution to find spots for 182 future doctors this year and then we need all stakeholders to work together to find a sustainable long term solution that addresses bottlenecks at all stages of the training pathway. Unless that solution is found, we will have another shortage in 2013 and for many years to come. Want to help us? Take Action.
