The Intern Application Guideline contains application open and close dates, information about positions, eligibility, minimum criteria and frequently asked questions.

National Audit of Intern Acceptances

The National Audit of Intern Acceptances 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. For further information, view the National Audit of Acceptances flyer.

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 the Department of Health website.
