OUR VISION

Australian Medical Expeditions (AME) provides compulsory continuing medical education for doctors during expeditions to some of the most impressive locations worldwide.

An Australian Medical Expedition is a great way to learn new skills and meet new people, as well as getting away from it all. It is a physical and mental challenge that enlivens the mind, body and spirit. Family are welcome on expeditions, so you can also spend quality time with your loved ones surrounded by all the rugged beauty that nature has to offer.


OUR HISTORY

Australian Medical Expeditions (AME) was conceived and launched as one of the primary social development programs of Bloodless Diamonds Australia (BDA), a progressive social equity company founded in order to fund a slate of programs supporting communities and ecosystems worldwide. This is achieved through an equity stake in alluvial diamond mining in South Africa through its shareholding in the South African mining company, Staten Island Trading. Apart from BDA as a shareholder, AME is a doctor only owned company that generates income through it’s shareholding in BDA and the provision of world class medical education.


OUR BUSINESS MODEL

AME's financial goal is to support the medical fraternity by generating corporate and passive income streams for doctors. Conventionally in medical training the instructing doctor gets paid a token amount for training services, but misses out on the corporate rate which usually goes to the lawyers and auditors managing the project. 

All of our senior training doctors are invited to become shareholders in AME. We also provide opportunities to our wider community of trusted doctors, offering very generous rates for senior doctors who lead our courses.

AME subsidises ongoing education for its shareholders including The Practitioner’s Certificate in Mediation through The Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators: Australia, as well as other education opportunities.

Shareholder doctors are offered first right of refusal to lead AME projects and have freedom of choice in which of the projects to get involved in. All shareholder doctors are paid at our generous corporate rates, in addition to an exciting passive income opportunity. Australian Medical Expeditions has reached an agreement with its founder company, Bloodless Diamonds Australia which gives it, AME, a shareholding within BDA. This opens up an enormously attractive opportunity for passive income generation from BDA's alluvial diamond mining equity into the future.

We are actively looking for two doctors to partner with us as senior medical trainers and shareholders in AME. Register your interest in joining Australian Medical Expeditions for the opportunity to travel the world, generate corporate and passive income and to make a real difference in the world.
