Western Health offers a comprehensive advanced training program in General and Acute Care Medicine including for those undertaking dual training in association with another subspecialty.

In 2022 we will be developing General Internal Medicine Senior Clinical Lead roles which will provide clinical oversight and support to the four inpatient teams at each site and to other clinical services. The advanced trainees in General Internal Medicine work closely with the Head of Unit to ensure an efficient and high quality service and to supervise and support junior medical staff.

There is a senior medical registrar based at both Sunshine and Footscray Hospital. These roles provide managerial support to the General Internal Medicine service at each site and an inpatient consultation service. The senior medical registrar at Sunshine also supports the Obstetric Medicine Service while the senior medical registrar at Footscray works closely with the Director of Physician Education to organise preparation for the RACP written and clinical examinations and coordinate Western Health as a site for the RACP clinical examination.

The General Internal Medicine Unit is closely associated with the University of Melbourne, Western Clinical School and has an active research program and consultants with experience in supporting productive advanced training projects. There are also opportunities for future higher degree research training projects/PhDs.
