Chief Minister Gallagher has announced she’s reached agreement with the Federales to place more interns into Canberra’s hospitals:
“The ACT Government has agreed to fund an additional five internships in 2013. In return, the Australian Government will fund five additional intern places in the ACT public hospital system, and a further five internships in ACT private hospitals in 2013.” said Ms Plibersek.
“These places will increase the supply of highly trained medical professionals in the ACT, and will also ensure that more Australian trained doctors remain in our health workforce.”
“I congratulate the Chief Minister for her foresight in tackling the projected shortage of medical internships in our hospitals next year,” said Ms Plibersek.
