NSW Health has welcomed more than 1,000 interns to the system – a record number of new starters and the most of any state or territory in Australia.
For the second year in a row, Central Coast Local Health District (CCLHD) has 68 intern positions.
“We owe a debt of gratitude to the intern class of 2022, many of whom have already
worked either as Assistants in Medicine or student vaccinators as part of the COVID-19 workforce response across NSW,” District Director Medical Services Professor Steevie Chan said.
“They will continue to play a vital role in our District’s hospitals as we navigate the challenges of this unprecedented, world-wide pandemic.”
The new doctors starting their internship will be entering a training program with networked hospitals throughout the state, providing formal and on the job training.
They receive two-year contracts to rotate between metropolitan, regional and rural hospitals to ensure the diversity of their experience. They also work in different units in each hospital, including the medicine, surgery and emergency departments.
Interns are medical graduates who have completed their medical degree and are required to complete a supervised year of practice in order to become independent
