The interns will work with and learn from NSW Health’s experienced and highly skilled medical staff.

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 rotate across different specialties during the intern year, including surgery, medicine and emergency medicine.

Minister for Health Ryan Park wished the new junior doctors “all the very best for a long and rewarding career in the NSW public health system”.

“NSW employs more than 170,000 people in public hospitals across the state – making us the largest health system in Australia and a very attractive choice for young doctors looking to train in a diverse range of clinical settings,” he said.
