Staff

As a responsible corporate citizen, AMH Pty Ltd believes in conducting its business with a healthy dose of social conscience.

We run a dual management structure, with a General Manager and a Managing Editor reporting to a Board of Directors comprising two nominees from each of our three owner organisations. They lead a small, committed and qualified team of staff with broad work experiences in practical and/or academic areas, ranging from medicine, pharmacy, IT and marketing to administrative fields. In addition, our network comprising of over 100 reviewers throughout Australia complement our operations. Without a doubt, our human resources form the bedrock of our success.
