Common Internship/Residency FAQ thread.

Best to check state relevant health webpages. Here's an example of NSW and QLD:
https://www.heti.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/424556/NSW-Health-Priority-List-for-2020-Intern-Recruitment.pdf

Note that these are subject to change each year.
Each state/territory has their own priority list when it comes to selecting internships. As an example, category 1 might be domestic graduates from that state and category 2 might be domestic graduates from other states etc. In Queensland, currently domestic graduates from Queensland universities are in category 1, which means that domestic Bond graduates have the same chance of achieving an internship position at a certain hospital as those from any other uni, regardless of CSP/BMP/FFP etc.

HOWEVER the COAG agreement states that all CSP medical graduates are guaranteed an internship position somewhere in Australia after graduating. This guarantee is not extended to FFPs. Therefore, if in future the number of internship applicants exceeded the number of positions available, the international students, followed by the domestic FFP graduates, would be the ones to miss out on internship. This hasn't happened yet but with increasing numbers of graduates, it could be something to occur in future, which is something all people applying for FFP medical school positions should be aware of.

Thank you for your answers <3

Technical correction - the COAG is an agreement between Federal and State govs that a state is only given CSP/BMP med places if the state gov guarantees internships for them (i.e. if not the federal gov would reduce their CSP quota accordingly). So the guarantee is only for within the state you graduate from.

Regarding domestic FFP grads, they are not covered by this COAG agreement however all *current* priority tables make no mention of FFP versus CSP. Which means if there are intern positions in the state for them they get allocated on the same ranking as CSP grads.

That’s good to hear, hopefully it stays that way. Thanks for the help.

For Bond FFPs in particular, I have heard from two sources that the uni has a separate agreement with the Qld gov to provide internships for Bond graduates (one mentioned Bond pays/contributes to these interns' salaries). I'm fairly sure it will stay that way.

Awesome. Thank you.
 
This question may have been answered. Sorry in advance

I am starting medicine this year and received a bonded medical place.
Q1) Do you get paid for your 3 years of bonded service? If so, how does the pay work?
Q2) Do you get to choose where you work. If not, can you do anything to work close to sydney?
Q3) I understand that we do roughly 2 years of internship and residency before starting specialist training. Will those 2 years of work be included within our three years of bonded service, OR do we have to do 5 years of pre specialist work (if that made sense)

If you could link any websites that will help me find more information please do so :)

Thanks in advance!
