Summary Although it has long been recognised that doctors play a crucial role in the effectiveness and efficiency of health organisations, patient experience and clinical outcomes, over the past 20 years the topic of medical engagement has started to garner significant international attention. Australia currently lags behind other countries in its heedfulness to, and evidence base for, medical engagement. This Perspective piece explores the link between medical engagement and health system performance and identifies some key questions that need to be addressed in Australia if we are to drive more effective engagement.
