Applying for a comparability assessment

The first thing to do as part of your PEP SP application is apply for a comparability assessment.

What is a comparability assessment?

A comparability assessment is the process of assessing how your experience and training compare to an Australian trained general practitioner at the point of admission to Fellowship.

The RACGP will assess your comparability by considering several criteria, including your training, qualification(s), assessment methods, clinical experience, continuity of practice and ongoing professional development.

There are three possible outcomes to a comparability assessment. You can be assessed as Substantially Comparable, Partially Comparable, or Not Comparable.


For more information on the comparability criteria and how they are assessed, go to the PEP SP Comparability Assessment Guide.
