National Audit of Intern Acceptances and Unplaced Applicants

South Australia take part in the National Audit of Intern Acceptances and Unplaced Applicants, which identifies applicants who are holding multiple intern acceptances across Australia. Applicants who have accepted more than one intern position will be contacted by the National Audit Data Manager. These applicants are then asked to withdraw from all intern positions, except the one that they intend to undertake for their intern year.

Junior Doctor Training Program – Private Hospital Stream (PHS)

This initiative is designed to increase the nation’s capacity to train medical interns in alternative settings, such as private hospitals, and in rural and regional Australia, where there are traditionally fewer options for internship training.

These places are only available to eligible international full-fee paying medical students from onshore medical schools in Australia having completed all of their medical degree in Australia. For further information visit the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care.
