About the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Professional Internship Programme
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) provides a one year professional internship programme for newly graduated medical doctors. This one year internship programme is comprised of three month rotations in each of the following clinical departments, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics and Surgery. In these departments, interns work
under the supervision of a consultant, and in conjunction with other junior doctors, as frontline medical care givers to practice their clinical skills and develop the professional characteristics of a good physician.
Throughout the internship programme, interns are continuously assessed on their clinical skills. On completion of the one year professional internship programme, these assessments form a part of the criteria utilized to determine the recipients of the “Outstanding Interns,” and the “Intern of the Year” awards.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital has a long history as a teaching institution where many of Barbados’ most distinguished physicians and surgeons began their medical careers. While proud of its history, the QEH acknowledges the hard work and invaluable contribution of its intern corps and remains committed to the development of today’s interns into the
outstanding doctors of tomorrow.
