I understand that medical internship is called امتياز. If so, does this mean that when this doctor joined the hospital, he was an intern, or does the term mean something different here?

Explanation:
Internship is spent as rotations at hospitals. 1/1/83 is the day he started his internship year. Going from one hospital to another, he is an intern, until the year is over.

The way it is done in Egypt is you graduate (more or less at the same time for all universities). A month or so after graduation, internship starts (12 months of two-month rotations at major specialities. Half at gov. hospitals, the other half at uni. hospitals). Then you obtain the license to practice as a doctor. Some move to rural health service. Those with college posts awaiting them,go to become residents. The rest, destined to work for the government, then apply for residencies, to become specialists later. Selection subject to several factors.

It is possible of course for a grad. to apply to spend his internship or part of it, at hospitals outside the area of his university (closer to home for instance)...subject to acquiring necessary approvals of course.
