QEII Hospital welcomes new doctors

3 March 2020

After years of training, 10 new and enthusiastic medical interns have started work at QEII Hospital.

The next generation of medical professionals were among over 140 interns who launched their careers across Metro South Health this month.

QEII Hospital Medical Education Officer, Jason Abraham, said QEII was a first-rate training ground.

“These interns will be trained by some of Australia’s leading clinicians who are committed to teaching excellence” he said.

“They’ve worked extremely hard to get to this stage, and now they’ll have the opportunity to grow and develop within QEII’s supportive environment.

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

This is the first year QEII Hospital will train interns as a Primary Allocation Centre with interns completing all core and elective rotations at the facility.  

Throughout 2020, the interns will complete core rotations in general medicine, general surgery and emergency medicine along with electives in specialised areas which includes orthopedics, urology or gynecology.

Jason said the interns will be well supported at QEII by a strong network of senior staff who will guide them through their internship.   

“We look forward to seeing our first cohort come through and can’t wait to kick start their careers.”
