Australasian Junior Medical Officer Committee (AJMOC)
The Australasian Junior Medical Officers’ Committee (AJMOC) meets twice a year and is administratively supported by the Confederation of Prevocational Medical Education Councils (CPMEC). The committee meets face to face for both meetings with each jurisdictional Postgraduate Medical Council (or equivalent) sponsoring the attendance of their state or territory JMOF President/Chair.
The AJMOC brings together Australasian (including New Zealand) JMO forum representatives and other interested junior doctors to discuss current issues in junior doctor education and training.
One of the face to face meetings is held in conjunction with the annual national Prevocational Medical Education Forum. At this meeting the AJMOC develops a statement of resolutions addressing the educational and welfare needs of junior doctors in training, to improve medical education in Australia and ultimately improve the care of patients.
The 2018 AJMOC meeting took place in Melbourne, Victoria, as part of the 23rd Australian and New Zealand Prevocational Medical Education Forum.
The 2017-2019 AJMOC Resolutions had input from junior doctors from all Australian states and territories, including New Zealand. It presents the largest collective consensus opinion of junior doctors on various education, accreditation, welfare and training matters.
