Twenty new medical graduates will begin their internships at Campbelltown Hospital this year.
The interns will rotate through metropolitan, regional or rural hospitals, as well as GP practices.
Their internships were announced last week when they were given a hearty welcome from local politicians, among others.
“I would like to welcome these interns to our wonderful Campbelltown community in our ever expanding Campbelltown Hospital,” said the State Member for Campbelltown, Mr Bryan Doyle, who was there along with some of his colleagues, the Camden and Wollondilly MPs Chris Patterson and Jai Rowell.
NSW guarantees intern positions to all domestic medical graduates of NSW universities.
As well, NSW provides internships to many graduates from interstate universities and, where possible, international full-fee paying medical graduates.
During their one-year internship, the graduates will complete compulsory terms in the specialties of medicine, surgery and emergency.
“I would like to wish these interns all the best for their placements at Campbelltown Hospital,” Mr Doyle said.
