Once you finish your medical degree, you need to undertake an internship. In order to get full registration and to prove that you are fit to practice medicine, you are required to successfully undertake and complete at least one year of supervised practice (commonly known as an internship). This period of internship is done in accredited training hospitals and allows you to practice as a doctor. You can then move on to residency or perhaps find an area you want to specialise in, such as, paediatrics, oncology, general practice or surgery.
In 2013, the AIDA Student Representative Committee developed the AIDA Indigenous Medical Students Guide to Internship to provide an online resource for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to assist in preparing applications for medical internship.
