THE Wide Bay Hospital and Health Service has broken new ground in health administration by employing health management interns.

The 2015 Health Management Internship Program, which is accredited by the Australasian College of Health Service Management, will see two management interns work across roles in the WBHHS.

Megan Lochrin has returned home to Hervey Bay after a stint in Gladstone, while Brisbane's Sinead Taylor made the move to Bundaberg at the weekend.

The two-year internship will see the women work in areas including human resources, financial management, information management, special projects, corporate governance and risk management.

Ms Lochrin said it was exciting to move back to Hervey Bay and take up such an exciting role in health management that would give her greater health service experience and knowledge.

WBHHS chief executive Adrian Pennington said internships were great opportunities for these graduates.
