Applicant groups for intern positions
In Queensland, intern applicants are classified into two categories;
Guaranteed offer graduates - Medical graduates who are guaranteed an offer of an intern position in Queensland for their immediate postgraduate year. Allocations to an intern position may be automatic or via random ballot, based on hospital preferences nominated by the individual in their intern application form. (For eligible applicants - see Group A).
Not guaranteed offer graduates - Medical graduates who are not guaranteed an intern offer. A merit selection process is undertaken to determine if an offer of an intern position will be made. (For eligible applicants - see Groups B-D).
There is no inherent prioritisation across applicant groups, the categorisation of these groups are used for reporting for the intern campaign. Each participating Hospital and Health Service establishes individual assessment processes to merit select from their available applicant pool and are not obligated to sequentially select through the applicant groups. To find out about each Hospital and Health Service's merit selection process and what they look for in an intern please contact the Hospital directly.
Applicant groups B, C and D will be merit selected as per all medical practitioners in alignment with local HR recruitment standard engagement policies.
Applicants who do not meet the outlined criteria for Groups A, B, C or D may be considered at the discretion of each participating hospital.
