Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, the provincial health minister, has welcomed the new intake of medical interns to the Western Cape province.

The junior doctors will be doing their two-year stints at public health facilities across the province.

New Somerset Hospital welcomed 25 new medical interns out of a total of 333 interns who were allocated to the province for this year.

In addition to the new intakes, the hospital has 12 second-year interns, amounting to 36 medical interns in total.

Altogether, the Western Cape has about 500 medical interns across the service platform, inclusive of those who are in their second year of internship.

The purpose of internship is to provide well-rounded, patient-centred, team-based, practical work experience to these junior doctors.

They develop the practical skills to go with the theoretical base they already have, under the supervision and mentorship of more senior and experienced teams.

“I would like to welcome these junior doctors into the health system of the Western Cape.

The interns are from across the country and have been placed in our system to help them gain the necessary experience to be able to add value to the public health system.

“I want to encourage them to work hard, be 100% dedicated, and make use of every single teachable moment they will get while on this platform,” said Mbombo.

Dr Beth Engelbrecht, head of health department added: “We encourage our new interns to grab this opportunity to learn as much as possible – also from the experienced nurses they work with; especially as they work with qualified midwives; intensive care, trauma nurses and paediatric nurses, and at clinics with clinical nurse practitioners.

We hope that these new interns make the best of their learning opportunities and that they can get the very best out of the two years before becoming safe and caring, well-trained doctors.”
