Housemanship and registration
In Australia, following successful completion of the medical degree, graduates are eligible for provisional registration by the Medical Board of Victoria or other state medical boards. After serving a compulsory internship year in an approved hospital, they are eligible for final registration in Victoria and in other states of Australia.
In Malaysia, following successful completion of the medical degree, graduates are eligible for provisional registration by the Malaysian Medical Council. After serving compulsory housemanship, they are eligible for full registration in Malaysia, but Malaysian citizens will be required by the Ministry of Health to undertake a further two years of compulsory service. International students currently are not able to do housemanship in Malaysia. The school cannot guarantee international students internship placements in Australia. As a result, many of our international students elect to complete their internships in their home country. Students should not have an expectation of gaining an internship in Australia.
Please note internship placement in Victoria are guaranteed only for Australian citizens and permanent residents who have completed their medicine degree in Victoria. Australian citizens and permanent residents who completed their medicine degree outside Victoria (including Monash University Malaysia) will find it difficult to obtain internships in Victoria.
