  • An internship is a phase of training wherein a graduate is expected to conduct the actual practice of medicine and healthcare and acquire skills under supervision so that he/she may become capable of functioning independently. Time allocation to each discipline is approximate and shall be guided more specifically by the actual experience obtained.

  • Thus a student serving in a district or taluk hospital emergency room may well accumulate skill in surgery, orthopaedics, medicine, obstetrics and Gynaecology, and Paediatrics during even a single night on duty.

  • Responsible authorities from the medical college shall adjust the intern experience to maximize intern’s opportunities to practice skills in patient care in a rough approximation of the time allocation suggested.
