Internship in Indonesia

Hi! I am Madeline, a medical student from Indonesia. I am still confused if Indonesia’s internship program is acceptable for GMC.

Generally speaking, Indonesia’s internship program is divided into 2 periods. The first period, intern doctors work at a hospital for 8 months. For 4 months, they will be placed at an IGD (sort of the equivalent of Emergency Department) and for another 4 months, they will undergo a rotation of obgyn, surgery, pulmonology, pediatrics, and internal medicine at wards. The second period, intern doctors are placed at a puskesmas (pusat kesehatan masyarakat, government-mandated community health clinic) to do general medicine.

My question is if the 4-month period working at an ED would be counted as “General Surgery” in the internship acceptable requirement.

Thank you so much.
