Internship Readiness Survey 2018

Final year students: how “confident” are you ahead of beginning your internship in 2019? What are your greatest fears?


Over the last 5 years, the Pre-Internship (PRINT) Conference has surveyed nearly 2,000 graduating medical students in order to better understand areas of concern and how to improve knowledge/skills in those areas.


We are pleased to launch our 2018 internship readiness survey. Completing the survey takes less than 2 minutes and there are great prizes on offer!

How we use results from the survey

Any data from the survey is de-idenfied and raw data is used to

  • plan the yearly PRINT Conference academic program, ensuring that the content covered is tailored to delegates’ requirements
  • contribute to state and national level meetings on work-readiness (e.g. through the COAG Health Council Intern Work Readiness Forum in October 2016)
  • present findings at academic events on medical education (e.g. Australian & New Zealand Prevocational Medical Education Forum in 2016, 2017 and 2018)
  • improve work-readiness (i.e. preparation for internship) via various contributions & discussions at state and national levels


We would like to thank AdvanceMed for offering the CV courses & reviews, and MDA National for supporting our internship readiness surveys in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 by offering tablets and VISA gift cards!
