The next generation of medical professionals were among over 140 interns who launched their careers across Metro South Health in January.
QEII Hospital Medical Education Officer, Jason Abraham, said QEII was a first-rate training ground with the benefit of digital clinical records.
“These interns will be trained by some of Australia’s leading clinicians who are committed to teaching excellence,” he said.
This is the second cohort to be trained at QEII Hospital as a Primary Allocation Centre with interns completing all core and elective rotations within the facility.
“Our first cohort last year had quite the introduction to their medical careers in the midst of the pandemic but the supportive community environment here at QEII was one of the things that helped them grow and develop along a clinical journey that was in a constant state of change.”
Throughout 2021, the interns will complete core rotations in general medicine, general surgery and emergency medicine along with electives in specialised areas which includes orthopaedics, urology or gynaecology.
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 welcome the 2021 cohort to our unique QEII community, and we are pleased to be a part of their career journey.”
