Overview

When you applied for entry into the PEP SP, you were assessed as Substantially Comparable to an Australian trained specialist general practitioner at the point of admission to Fellowship. This means that you are now about to start your PEP SP journey on the Substantially Comparable (SC) stream.

The PEP SP on the SC stream is a self-directed and workplace-based program. You will spend a minimum of six months in comprehensive Australian general practice, during which you’ll work under supervision and complete targeted educational activities to enable your successful transition to the Australian general practice system. Towards the end of your training program, you’ll be required to complete a series of workplace-based assessments to demonstrate that you have reached comparability with an Australian trained specialist general practitioner (GP) commencing practice (ie at the level of a new Fellow of the RACGP).

Once you have successfully completed the PEP SP and met the requirements for Fellowship of the RACGP (FRACGP), you’ll be eligible for admission to the FRACGP and for specialist medical registration with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). It is important to note that you’ll be required to keep working under supervision until you are admitted to FRACGP.
