A medical student who failed her final exams has apologised to patients after posing as an intern at a major hospital in Sydney’s south west for seven months. 

The 28-year-old woman pleaded guilty in Downing Centre Local Court for working as a junior doctor at Bankstown-Lidcombe Hospital without AHPRA registration between 18 January and 9 August this year.
