Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today congratulated 10 medical graduates who will commence their clinical internships at Mona Vale Hospital this week.
A record number of 999 graduates are commencing positions in NSW hospitals this week as part of a major investment by the NSW Government to boost the number of doctors in metropolitan and rural areas.
The interns will be under the guidance of experienced senior doctors and will put into practice their many years of university preparation.
“This is a really exciting and rewarding time for these medical graduates,” Rob Stokes said today.
“Mona Vale Hospital has a longstanding history of contributing to the education of our state’s medical workforce and we know these latest graduates will be in excellent hands.
“I’m delighted the NSW Government is continuing to lead the nation in training junior doctors and responding to the ever increasing demand for medical services.
“I congratulate these graduates on reaching this important stage in their training and look forward to the vital contribution they’ll make to our community,” Rob Stokes said.
