RACGP Examiners

Examiner stock

The RACGP examinations assess a doctor’s competence to practice as an unsupervised general practitioner anywhere in Australia.

RACGP examiners play an important role in maintaining the high standards of the examinations to ensure they remain valid and relevant to the today’s continually evolving general practice environment. Becoming an RACGP examiner gives RACGP Fellows the opportunity to use their expertise to contribute to the positive development of the profession.

As every RACGP Fellow would agree, the RACGP examinations are an important milestone for those who are working towards a career in general practice.
