With the two-year internship planned from 2021 to be an 18-month hospital rotation and a 6-month Family Medicine rotation, the number of interns expected in Johannesburg Health District will be increased considerably. However only half of them will actually be in CHCs/Clinics due to the PHC rotation requirements by HPCSA and variations amongst the three hospitals.

The rotation in Jhb Family Medicine in the main will be one month at Emergency Medicine Departments in their base hospitals, one month in a District Hospital (Bheki Mlangeni, South Rand and Lens South Hospitals), and four months at a Community Health Centre/Large Clinic (with doctors present and supervising and a more comprehensive rotation including maternity, mother and child care). This stint includes two weeks at Chiawelo Community Practice (CCP) for CHBAH interns.
