Welcome to the 2024 RBWH medical intern cohort
On Monday 15 January, the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) welcomed 91 new medical interns to the hospital, kicking off with a week of orientation. The orientation included a range of presentations, activities and networking opportunities to help the interns settle into their new role at the hospital.

Lintaro and Shintaro Hung
Twins Lintaro and Shintaro are both following in the footsteps of their father and grandfather, who are doctors in Taiwan. The duo will start their intern year in General Surgery, and hope to eventually specialise in radiology.

“Going through this entire journey together definitely helps, we are able to talk to each other about our experiences. This is a long time coming, but we’ve always stayed on the path of medicine and it feels good to finally be here,” Lintaro said.
Hannah Bates isn’t a new face to RBWH, after completing her student placement here last year. She’s excited to start a new routine and to be working as part of a big cohort of interns.
“I really enjoyed being a student here and feel that the hospital has an exciting mix of patients. I like to keep an open mind about what I’d like to specialise in in the future, but at the moment I’m leaning more towards medical specialist and physician training.”
RBWH medical intern Jeremy Hunt
Jeremy Hunt has a bright future ahead of him, with his intern year at RBWH and an upcoming opportunity as the 2023 University of Oxford Rhode Scholar for Queensland.
“I’ll be heading over to the United Kingdom later this year where I’ll be working at Oxford University in the translational health sciences and digital health space. Long term for my career, I’m really interested in how digital technology can help improve health systems. For my intern year, I’m excited to be able to start applying what I’ve learnt in medical school and to have a level of responsibility with patients.”
Hannah Beith is thrilled to be completing her intern year at RBWH due to it being a tertiary hospital that offers maternity care.
“I previously worked in public health, however decided to pursue a medical degree to further my career. Now, I’m particularly interested in obstetrics medicine and would eventually like to move to a rural area to work in medicine.”
