The intern year marks the transition from student to medical practitioner. It provides the experience of applying the theory to the treatment of patients as a responsible professional. The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) issues medical graduates with provisional registration to undertake this period of supervised practice.

The intern year involves at least 47 weeks of satisfactory, supervised clinical experience that includes:

  • A core term of at least 10 weeks in medicine;
  • A core term of at least 10 weeks in surgery;
  • A core term of at least eight weeks in a core emergency medical care rotation; and
  • Non-core rotations which make up the balance of the intern year.

These clinical settings provide opportunities to explore additional areas of medicine and surgery, psychiatry, rehabilitation medicine, palliative care and more. At the completion of the intern year, the employing Local Health Network is required to certify that the internship has been completed satisfactorily, including details of completed rotations.  AHPRA will grant general registration when it receives confirmation that the internship has been satisfactorily completed, along with other requirements.

There are four Local Health Networks in South Australia where you may undertake your intern year. During this year you may request, or be required, to undertake one or more rotations in any of SA Health’s accredited intern posts.

Appointment will be subject to meeting registration requirements, a satisfactory Department of Communities and Social Inclusion (DCSI) Child Related and aged Care Sector Background Screening Check. It is recommended that you commence processes to obtain these credentialing documents as soon as possible.
