To the Editor: We report that the internship location choices of the second cohort of medical students to graduate from James Cook University (JCU) are very similar to those of the first cohort.1 Of the 75 students who graduated in the second cohort in 2006, 65 (87%) are working in Queensland; 42 (56%) in North Queensland (roughly the area north of Mackay). Fifty-three (71%) are in non-metropolitan hospitals, including three of the 10 graduates who moved or returned interstate.
