Mr Adam Crouch MP, member for Terrigal has welcomed the latest intake of medical graduates who are commencing their one-year internship at Gosford Hospital.

Mr Crouch visited the hospital to meet the medical graduates and welcome them on their first week of orientation. “There are 983 medical intern places in NSW in 2016, which is a record,” Mr Crouch said.

“It is a privilege to visit Gosford Hospital to meet the new interns at the beginning of their journey as doctors,” he said. “The first day of an internship is a key milestone in the life of every young doctor and I can only imagine how excited they must feel. “We are fortunate enough to have 61 interns starting at Gosford and Wyong Hospitals and I wish them well during their time here,” he said.

According to Mr Crouch, NSW is the only state to offer two year employment contracts to medical graduates commencing their internship.
