RACGP CCE examiners

Become an examiner for the Clinical Competency Exam

Completing the RACGP Fellowship exams is an important milestone towards a career in general practice. RACGP exams assess competence to practice as an unsupervised and specialist general practitioner anywhere in Australia and are a pathway to Fellowship of the RACGP (FRACGP).

CCE examiners are pivotal to the ongoing development and success of the Fellowship exams and consequently the award of FRACGP.
Becoming a CCE examiner provides the opportunity for RACGP Fellows to contribute to the positive development of their profession, utilising their vast knowledge for the benefit of Australian general practice. CCE examiners are engaged by the RACGP and work with their peers to test candidate knowledge and proficiency in an exam setting.

RACGP CCE examiners become qualified through training and, as a group, they help to maintain the high standard of the RACGP exams. RACGP examiners are active in Australian general practice and have first-hand knowledge of the nature and culture within it. Their contribution is highly valued and ensures RACGP exams remain valid and relevant to a continually evolving general practice environment.
CCE examiners must maintain membership of the RACGP whilst working in this capacity.

The role of a CCE examiner

CCE examiners utilise their knowledge and skills by:

  • Assessing the knowledge and proficiency of candidates at the RACGP Clinical Competency Exam (CCE).
  • Exercising expertise while working alongside peers to assess the competency of candidates in test conditions.

Reasons to be involved

Contributing to the RACGP exams is a valuable accomplishment for a Fellow of the RACGP (FRACGP). In addition, CCE examiners:

  • receive educational opportunities to ensure they have up-to-date medical knowledge
  • receive remuneration and CPD hours for accredited CCE examiner activities
  • experience a high level of collegiality and professional pride.
