RACGP Assessment for General Practitioners in Hospitals!

RACGP Assessment for General Practitioners in Hospitals!

Applying for an RACGP Assessment can become complicated if you were working overseas as a GP in the hospital system. We wanted to share our experience of having this experience assessed with RACGP:

  • Doctor had 7 years of experience as a GP in a number of hospitals.
  • They completed the same duties in this setting as Australian GPs and also worked additional hours in the Emergency Department.
  • They decided to complete an RACGP Assessment to ensure this experience would be considered as comparable to Australian General Practice.
  • Our team helped to prepare the RACGP CV and letters for the 100 points of evidence. We also reviewed the Domains for each position. 
  • The GP received an RACGP GPE Assessment of 3 years and 6 months comparable General Practice experience. 

GP roles in the hospital system can easily be confused as a hospital role, so we ensured the roles were appropriately explained in all documents provided to RACGP.
