Established in 1962, the Australian Medical Association (AMA) has approximately 26000 members in 2002. From their Web site, May 2002: "The Australian Medical Association is an independent organisation which represents more than 26,000 doctors, whether salaried or in private practice, whether general practitioners, specialists, teachers and researchers or young doctors. It also represents the public face of Australian medicine. It is the vehicle through which doctors fulfil their obligations to the community as advocates for those with neither power nor influence. The AMA is an agent of change, a voice of reason and an independent leader of societal values."
