Centralised Intern Application Process
In WA all interns are employed by a Primary Employing Health Service (PEHS) accredited by PMCWA. Each PEHS is a major tertiary hospital in WA which has been accredited to directly employ interns and provide a high quality intern training program.
The six PEHSs in WA are:
All six WA Health PEHS recruit through the Centralised Intern Application Process. Each PEHS holds an information session during the application period, with presentations from the Medical Education teams, current interns and more.
Following the close of applications in the centralised application process, all applications are reviewed by PMCWA and a pool created for all suitable applications. Applications appointed to the pool are grouped and managed according to the applicable priority category. Applications appointed to the pool will be offered positions according to category as positions are available and selection processes completed.
WA also participates in a National Audit, coordinated by the National Audit Data Manager, to identify applicants who have applied for and/or accepted intern positions in more than one state/territory. Further information about the audit can be found in the National Audit Flyer for the 2023 Clinical Year.
