Each component is semester long practicum. The training internship (TI) community based hospital attachment provides a unique opportunity for the students to develop and strengthen practical skills and knowledge and their application in community-based hospital and health centre-based care in the major areas of medical practice.
It is important to note that at all times the trainee intern practice will be supervised. TI's will also develop & conduct simple operational research or clinical audits of which the outcomes will be useful to the subdivisions or regional hospitals.
In the community attachment the trainees are expected to make a tangible contribution to the Continuing Medical Education programmes for their peers and staff.
