Here at People Medical Consulting we like spreading what we know and giving you a clear pathway to your career. We’re answering a different question each week based on queries raised via our Facebook & Instagram profiles.
How do I become a Fellowed GP in Australia?
You are required to have 4 years full time equivalent experience to be eligible to sit the RACGP Fellowship exams.
IMGs can have their overseas experience assessed, and if it is assessed at 3 or more years, then this will contribute towards your time.
You are required to have 47 weeks full time equivalent, fully comparable experience with an Australian General Practice, minimum to be eligible for the exams and 6 months must be “fully comparable” which means must contribute 100% to the time worked rather than, for example, being in after hours which is only considered to be 50% of the time worked.
You will complete the requirements for RACGP Fellowship once you have passed the AKT, KFP and OSCE exam and have 5 years GP experience and 7 years postgraduate experience.
