NSLHD welcomes newest intake of intern doctors

Northern Sydney Local Health District welcomed 92 intern doctors last week as they started their careers in medicine.

The medical graduates will join the ranks of close to 1100 medical graduate interns across the state as they embark on a supervised year of practice rotating between metropolitan, regional and rural hospitals.

They will be provided on the job education, training and vocational support.

Professor John Vassiliadis, Director of Prevocational Education and Training, said the new graduates were eager to start their training program, which
involves two years of supervised practice in order to become independent safe practitioners.

The new doctors are excited to start learning from our experienced and highly skilled medical, nursing and allied staff across the district.

“The internship year will help them build their skills and gain diverse experience across a range of medical specialties in metropolitan, rural and regional areas.

“We are all excited to welcome them into our network and look forward to working with them.”
