The AMA has protested a steep hike in registration fees as “effectively a tax on the profession”, calling for more government funding to account for AHPRA’s expanding role.

Fees for doctors are now almost $1000, rising 16% since last year, in part to cover the extra costs of a cosmetic surgery crackdown.
