    Does anyone know how many priority 3 internships were offered last year? Particularly, how many places were offered to graduates from an overseas campus of an Australian/New Zealand University accredited by the Australian Medical Council (e.g. Monash University – Sunway Campus, Malaysia). Thank you!

    Sunway Campus isn't counted as an Australian/New Zealand university for the purposes of internships as far as I know - it's counted as an overseas campus - see ( - this is not category 3, it's category SIX (a campus located outside Australia) of which there would be zero people offered an internship.

    Edited by A1 to help clarify: The above is true for most states except Vic where AMC accredited overseas-campus grads are in the same category 3 as Aus interstate grads. This may explain why there were 8 internships offered to these in 2017 in the report below.

    I found this COAG report for 2017
    > on the National Audit of Applications and Acceptances for Medical Internship and the Late Vacancy Management Process for 2017 Clinical Year.pdf

    - A total of 3438 intern positions were available for 2017
    (3338 State/Territory + 100 CMI Cmwth Medical Internships for int'l students)

    - 3741 applicants:
    3119 Aus trained domestic medical graduates,
    451 Aus trained international full fee (IFF) graduates,
    118 medical students from AMC accredited overseas campuses (Monash Malaysia & Oschner),
    48 AMC graduates and 5 medical students from NZ medical schools.

    - 3412 applicants had accepted a 2017 intern position:
    3066 domestic medical graduates from Aus (incl ~200 Aus FFs),
    235 (+ the 100 CMIs) IFF medical graduates from onshore Aus universities,
    8 IFF medical graduates from AMC accredited offshore campuses,
    1 AMC graduate and 2 NZ Medical School graduates.

    There were also 75 intern positions offered through the Late Vacancy process, of which 63 were accepted.

    Stats above illustrate just how radically and rapidly the workforce has changed in the past decade or so. Back in ~2005, AMC doctors made up a significant proportion of the intern and resident population, even in large tertiary urban centres. Now they're as rare as rocking-horse poo.

    Unsurprisingly, few. Given chances of international students in some states is slim, chances for overseas trained medical students is even slimmer.
