Junior Doctor Jobs
After completing their medical degree, Junior Doctors undertake up to 3 ‘postgraduate years’ of prevocational medical training, including an internship and residency. Pre-vocational training consists of ‘terms’ or ‘rotations’ in public or private hospitals, general practice, or sometimes community health settings, in both rural and metropolitan areas.
During this time, Junior Doctors are exposed to a broad range of clinical situations and develop hands on experience and skills. They work across emergency, surgery and other medical specialties. They learn from senior colleagues and build an understanding of the specialisations/vocational training they want to pursue in the future. Junior Doctors register with the Medical Board of Australia after completing their internship (PGY 1-2), and then complete a further year of clinical training to become Registrars.
