Hundreds of medical graduates today begin their year-long internship in hospitals across New South Wales.
NSW has recruited 983 medical graduates to intern positions across the state. Of these, 19 Aboriginal Medical Graduates are beginning internship, with three working in rural hospitals.
A total of 115 medical graduates have taken up positions through the rural pathway, the Rural Preferential Recruitment Scheme.
New South Wales is the only state to offer two-year employment contracts to graduates commencing their internship. Over these two years, they rotate through a network including metropolitan, rural and regional hospitals. This exposes them to a range of clinical scenarios and supports them to complete their compulsory internship rotations in medicine, surgery and emergency.
New interns can find a wide range of useful resources using the HETI medical webpages.
Alternatively, visit the HETI internships homepage for more details about prevocational training, as well as videos and frequently asked questions.
Congratulations to all New South Wales interns as they embark on their careers in the health service in 2016.
