Career pathways

We're the first step in training for your career in medicine. When you graduate you'll be qualified to be a medical intern in Australia and New Zealand.

  • Address the doctor shortage in the bush

    We need more doctors in the regions, for the regions. You'll be well prepared to combat the shortage of doctors in rural and regional Australia and will have the opportunity to address Indigenous and remote healthcare. You could also pursue a career in medical research, working alongside scientists to help develop cures for illnesses.

  • Internship

    After graduation, you will begin your medical career as an intern, managed in New South Wales by the Health Education and Training Institute (HETI). After one year you'll be eligible for general registration to begin the next phase of your medical training.

  • Pursue a specialty

    You could go on to become a general practitioner (GP), and have a strong impact on your local community's health. You'll use your specialised medical skills to diagnose and treat a broad range of physical and mental illnesses. You'll also assist in the prevention of illness and disease and build your network in community health as you refer your patients to specialist medical practitioners. Whether in general practice or another specialty area, you'll undertake training through one of the medical colleges while working in that area, and enjoy many career opportunities, in a hospital, community setting or elsewhere. Will you become a surgeon, a paediatrician, a radiologist, an emergency physician or a perhaps a future Chief Medical Officer?
