All clinical officers who have completed three years institutional training of their basic course in Kenya, are required to undergo one year of internship in an approved hospital.

A Clinical Officer intern is a person holding a diploma in clinical medicine and surgery or similar qualifications recognized by the Council who is undergoing a prescribed period of training in an approved training institution.

Clinical Officer internship is a one year compulsory training undertaken by a clinical officer immediately after completion of his basic training course in an approved training institution and may also include any further institutional training recommended by the Council to be undertaken by a clinical officer who is either trained outside Kenya and who wishes to be registered and/or licensed by the council or who has been assessed by the Council and been recommended for further training

Information which might help
The Clinical Officers Council would like to remind all Clinical Officers that internship is part of Training as stipulated in Clinical Officers (Training, Registration and Licensing) Act, Cap 260. It is therefore mandatory for all newly qualified Clinical Officers to undergo internship for the prescribed period of 12 months as provided for in the rules governing Training, Registration and Licensing for Clinical Officers.

Upon completion of the internship period, an intern shall submit to the Council a duly completed internship assessment from as specified in the Forms and Fees Regulations, duly signed by his supervisors and the medical superintendent where the intern undertook his internship.
