PAH welcomes 87 new doctors

13 January 2020

After years of training, 87 new and enthusiastic medical interns have started work at Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH).

The next generation of medical professionals were among 142 interns who launched their careers across Metro South Health this month.

PA Hospital Acting Executive Director, Dr Brian Bell, said PAH was a first-rate training ground.

“These interns have chosen PAH to learn from some of the leading clinicians in Australia,” he said.

“They’ve worked extremely hard to get to this stage, and now they’ll have the opportunity to continue to grow and develop with the support of all of PAH.

“I congratulate them on their success so far and welcome them to the team.”

Throughout 2020, the interns will rotate through a variety of units including general medicine, surgery, emergency medicine and other specialised areas.

Dr Bell said the interns would be supported by the entire hospital.

“Our staff both clinical and non-clinical will do everything they can to help the interns find their feet,” he said.

“As a tertiary hospital, the PAH prides itself on education and training so we look forward to kick starting the careers of our newest intern cohort.”
