Why choose the Monash Intern Training Program?

Monash ITP student Eleanor discusses her experience in Alice Springs as part of her internship at the Alfred Hospital.

The Graduate Certificate offers a great opportunity to extend your learning in a range of areas without committing too much time or money.
