Intake of new interns maintains tradition
Intake of new interns maintains tradition

Kalgoorlie Hospital continues its tradition of educating young doctors, with the arrival of five new interns. University of Western Australia Medical Centre graduates arrived in Kalgoorlie-Boulder on January 12 to begin their internships.

Arthur Teo, 23, said Kalgoorlie had a small-town feel that made him feel very accepted.

“The town is very small compared to Perth, but it has this really nice feel about it,” Dr Teo said. “It kind of reminds me of a tight-knit family.”

Intan Ramli, 26, had different views about moving to Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

“It’s a very small town and there’s not that much to do,” Dr Ramli said. “But I’m so busy at the hospital it’s not that bad.”

The interns, who are employed by Royal Perth Hospital, have been sent to Kalgoorlie Hospital to complete their first term.
