Northern Sydney Local Health District has welcomed 105 new medical graduate interns who joined the ranks of more than 1,000 new interns into the NSW Health system this year.
The medical graduates, who have recently completed their medical degree, will now embark on a supervised year of practice and begin their journey to become medical practitioners.
The new doctors have started their orientation and will be entering a training program that will also be networked with other hospitals throughout the state where they will be provided on-the-job education, training and vocational support.
They will rotate between metropolitan, regional and rural hospitals to ensure the diversity of their experience and join different units in each hospital, including surgery and emergency medicine.
Some of the interns from Royal North Shore Hospital were welcomed last week by NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet, NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard and Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant.
Northern Sydney Local Health District Chief Executive, Deb Willcox said it was so great to see the next generation of medical professionals.
