Western Health offers comprehensive training in General and Acute Care Medicine. There are rotations for core General Medicine plus a range of rotations in other subspecialties that have previously been accredited as non-general medicine rotations including acute rotations.

The General Internal Medicine Unit operates across the two campuses - Footscray and Sunshine Hospitals. Both hospitals have four inpatient General Internal Medicine inpatient teams and admit over 3,000 patients each a year.

There is a senior medical registrar based at both Sunshine and Footscray Hospital. These roles provide managerial support to the General Internal Medicine service at each site and an inpatient consultation service. The senior medical registrar at Sunshine also supports the Obstetric Medicine Service while the senior medical registrar at Footscray works closely with the Director of Physician Education to organise preparation for the RACP written and clinical examinations and coordinate Western Health as a site for the RACP clinical examination.

In 2020 we developed General Internal Medicine senior clinical lead roles which will provide clinical oversight and support to the four inpatient teams at each site including for acute medical admissions. The advanced trainees in General Internal Medicine work closely with the Head of Unit to ensure an efficient and high-quality service and to supervise and support junior medical staff. Rotations are also available to other specialty medical units at Western Health and to partner health services at Western Private (Footscray) and St John of God (Ballarat) hospitals
