EXTERNAL INTERNSHIPS
     
 

On a rotation basis, trainees can choose other centres to carry out their internships. They are important (at times, indispensable) to postgradute training as they bring workgroups closer, which may be rather rewarding. Below are the general guidelines for their administrative processing:

1) The resident's tutor will send a proposal addressed to the Teaching Commitee

2) Proposal will be sent three months in advance to ensure appropriate adminstrative processing

3) Proposal will specify:
    a) Training goals pursued
    b) Unit and centre of residence
    c) Rotating shift duration and preferred dates

The Teaching Committee will undertake all necessary proceedings to obtain an authorization by the hospital's Head Office, the destination unit and the regional/national Ministry of Healthcare and Social Policies.
