AChAM Committees

The Australasian Chapter of Addiction Medicine (AChAM) supports the professional careers of all Fellows and trainees of the Chapter. Alongside other relevant College Bodies and staff, the AChAM works on these aspects as they relate to addiction medicine:

  • education, training and assessment of trainees
  • education, continuing professional development and quality performance of Fellows
  • policy and advocacy
  • the assessment of overseas trained professionals
  • research
  • workforce

The AChAM Committee is the peak decision-making body for the Chapter.
