RACGP Letters of Support

RACGP Letters of Support


When preparing your RACGP General Practice Experience Assessment, you need to provide 100 points of evidence. The letters you can use as evidence can be confusing to write so we have created this handy guide to help you out! 

There are 3 types of letters that can be used to support your GPE Assessment. These are:

  1. Letter of support from your Practice Principal or Practice Manager on practice letterhead stating your name, position, hours worked per week, duties and dates worked at that practice
  2. Letters from Medical Director or Superintendent from a local hospital stating the length of time and capacity with which they knew you (maximum of 3)
  3. Letters from other medical professionals in the region on their letterhead, stating the length of time and capacity with which they knew you (maximum of 3)

We suggest that in addition to the requirements listed above, you also include a small write-up of the supporting doctor outlining what they do. Along the lines of: 

My name is Dr… and I have worked at… as a… for over X years, since DATE. I am in charge of/I do/ I am responsible for…
