This weeks doctor wishes to remain anonymous however, has successfully completed all of 3 of his fellowship exams and shares with us his valuable insights.


People Medical Consulting: How long before each exam did you start preparing?


Doctor: 6- 8 Weeks


People Medical Consulting: What resources did you find most helping when preparing for your exams?


Doctor: I found eTG, AFP, CHECK and John Murtgagh’s Handbook most helpful.


People Medical Consulting: What is your opinion on the exams themselves?


Doctor: KFP is the most difficult exam and you need to understand the way RACGP wants you to answer the questions.


This dedicated GP’s advice to anyone completing their FRACGP exams is to take part in group study, he says “Get together with a group of 3 people who have a similar study style and are studying under similar circumstances”
