In 2023, Austin Health will have 65 internship positions available, including one position dedicated to an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander candidate.
At Austin Health, our internship program is developed to provide you with well-structured and highly supportive teaching, training and clinical experiences that will enable you to consolidate and develop both your clinical knowledge and technical skills.
Key to the continued success of our program is the support and care we provide to our interns throughout the year and in the early but vital introduction period to working in the public health and hospital system.
Austin Health provides a comprehensive 5-day orientation and ongoing education program for all our interns, and have well supported peer and mentor programs in place to support the transition from medical student to intern.
We also have in place a unique role for our interns; the intern support officer. This well thought of position provides "real-time" support to our interns in their first week of after hours and weekend work from a colleague who has just completed their internship, and so understands all the jobs that an intern needs to do as well as the likely questions and anxieties a new intern may have.
