The Gold Coast Medical Association Inc (GCMA) is the only local membership-based organisation that represents the broad interests of the medical community on Queensland’s Gold Coast, Australia.

GCMA maintains strong links and is a conduit for communication between the Federal and State AMA jurisdictions, and with other regional Local Medical Associations.

In addition to promoting communication and networking among its members including general practitioners and specialists, the Association has a pivotal role in local and national issues, serving as a vital link between the medical profession and the wider community.

To this end, the GCMA is active in a range of areas, including:

  • Presentation of 10 monthly sponsored clinical meetings with invited speakers on cutting edge medical topics. This provides a meeting place for Gold Coast medicos, a way of introducing new arrivals and a means to help young practitioners learn about the business of medicine.
  • Annual public education sessions presented by leading Gold Coast specialist doctors on a wide range of medical topics.
  • In association with Griffith University, an annual Medical & Health Sciences conference to increase awareness of the future direction of Health Care.
  • A bi-monthly publication, The Medical Link, containing Association and medical news, views, clinical articles, reports and lifestyle issues of particular interest to the medical profession.
  • Active involvement in health promotion, charity and aid programs.
  • As the ‘Independent Voice of Medicine’ on the Gold Coast, maintaining an ongoing media presence on issues of importance to medical practitioners and their patients.
