There is currrently much debate about how to improve undergraduate medical education, and in particular on how best to prepare students for clinical responsibility.
For 20 years a period of trainee internship has formed part of New Zealand medical students' undergraduate training, and the model could have much to offer the United Kingdom.
Students take their final examinations at the end of the second clinical year; they spend their final year in a series of eight clinical attachments, during each of which they shadow a preregistration house officer or senior house officer.
As trainee interns they are paid 60% of a house officer's salary for their clinical work, which is supervised by the firm's registrars and consultants under the overall responsibility of the head of the academic department.
