Medical and Dental Professions Board’s Handbook on Internship Training

Just to recap, doctors trained in South Africa need to complete two years of internship, with no exam at the end of their internship, but the completion of a logbook after rotation in all prescribed domains.

Doctors trained abroad need to apply to the HPCSA for registration. Some may be exempted from a board exam, while others may have to write the exam. They may subsequently be required to perform supervised practice for up to two years or internship. The duration and domains of internship training or supervised practice for foreign qualified practitioners will be determined by HPCSA based on norms set for the same.
