Wollongong Hospital gets new interns

NSW Health have announced 46 new interns for Wollongong Hospital.

Health Minister Jillian Skinner said a record 925 interns have started work across the state’s hospital network.

“This is an exciting day in the life of every young doctor,” Mrs Skinner said.

Interns will gain experience during their year-long placement at Wollongong, rotating through metropolitan, outer metropolitan or rural hospitals, as well as GP practices. They will complete compulsory terms in the fields of medicine, surgery and emergency.

Mrs Skinner said the demand for intern places continues to grow. This year’s intake of 925 is an increase of almost 80 from 2012.

Meanwhile the Project Air Strategy for Personality Disorders and the Family and Carer Mental Health Program are hosting a workshop for families, partners and others who support someone with a personality disorder or related condition.

Titled ‘Staying Connected when Emotions Run High’, the workshop will be held at the University of Wollongong Innovation Campus, Squires Way, Fairy Meadow on Thursday January 31 from 9am to 3.30pm and is free. Morning tea and lunch are provided.

Project Air is a personality disorders strategy headed by NSW Health and implemented by staff within the Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health Network, and Justice Health.
