Now in its third year, the intern program is based at St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals with interns undertaking rotations at St John of God Subiaco Hospital and St John of God Murdoch Hospital.

St John of God Health Care Group CEO Dr Shane Kelly said the intern program now includes 20 medical interns and has been expanded to include our Murdoch hospital for the first time as well as our Subiaco and Midland hospitals.

“This means medical interns now have a greater variety of medical areas and locations to gain firsthand experience,” he said.

“It is also the first year that graduates of the Curtin University’s new medical school have joined the intern program.”

St John of God Midland Public and Private Hospitals CEO Michael Hogan said we are delighted to welcome our latest cohort of medical interns and wish them all the very best as they officially begin their medical career.

“We place great focus on providing our doctors in training with an outstanding teaching and training experience and supportive environment,” he said.

“Our unique four-term internship program has been created to provide interns with dedicated learning and research opportunities and a supportive environment, including flexible work arrangements.”

St John of God Health Care has a long and proud history of providing training for junior doctors at our various hospitals including through partnerships with tertiary public hospitals.

Dr Kelly said our intern program forms part of the organisation’s focus on making a substantial contribution to the development of a highly skilled medical workforce.
