Congratulations Dr Maria Boulton – President, AMA QLD

New AMA Queensland President

Dr Maria Boulton

Dr Maria Boulton has been elected the 127th President of AMA Queensland. She is the ninth woman to hold the role in the Association’s 128-year history. Dr Boulton, a GP in Brisbane, succeeds Professor Chris Perry and Dr Yim succeeds Dr Bav Manoharan.

“I have been lucky to have worked very closely with Chris and Bav. Both have been champions for general practice and I will follow their lead as a President who works for all members, regardless of where they work, what specialty they’re in, or what career stage they are at,” Dr Boulton said.

“I am excited to continue working with Nick. His daily experiences of the health system outside of the big cities and his previous career as a pharmacist bring invaluable insights as AMA Queensland fights for patient safety against dangerous proposals like the Queensland Government’s plan to let pharmacists diagnose and sell medicines for serious conditions with no medical oversight.
