The Alliance exists to help interns, residents, registrars, and fellows throughout their training and allow them to focus on their clinical work and education.

ASMOF (NSW) is the doctors’ union and AMA (NSW) is the peak body representing doctors in the State.

This means that, as a member, you will receive industrial representation and workplace support as well as advocacy on your behalf, access to member-only events, and more.

Industrial Representation

ASMOF (NSW) provides union representation to doctors-in-training and helps with workplace issues, including:

  • ensuring correct payment – ASMOF has recovered millions in underpayments owed to members since 2013
  • bullying and harassment
  • access to leave
  • workplace disputes
  • modernising the Award that governs DITs’ pay and working conditions.


The Doctors-in-Training Committee guides AMA (NSW) and ASMOF (NSW) Councils on their advocacy work for interns, residents, and registrars, including:

  • Working with government at state and federal levels to ensure action is taken on issues important to you
  • Representation in the media on issues like doctor-in-training wellbeing, training issues, and more
  • Ensuring there are adequate training positions from internship through to specialty training
