In 2014, a Review of Medical Intern Training was commissioned by the COAG (Council of Australian Governments) Health Council. The Review includes examining the current medical internship model and possible reforms which support medical graduate transition into practice, as well as further training.
The Review focuses on medical intern training in Australia, specifically four main areas. These four main areas include:
- The purpose of internship
- The effectiveness of the internship year
- The role of the internship, in supporting career decision making by doctors
- Models to support expansion of intern training settings
