You will need to complete a series of Workplace Based Assessments (WBA) while in the program. The assessments will be completed by your GP Supervisor and Medical Educator. A structure, including details about frequency and responsibility, will be available by June 2022.


Workplace Based Assessments (WBA) are assessments done in the workplace by GP Supervisors and Medical Educators to assess actual performance in general practice settings. WBA is a key part of progressive assessment, which informs progress throughout training.

The WBAs you will be expected to complete in the program include Direct Observations, Random Case Analysis and Case Base Discussions. More information about the WBA’s will be available by June 2022.


Yes, the FSP requires supervision. It is expected that a vocationally registered doctor in your practice will provide you with supervision and mentorship. If you are unable to source an in-practice GP Supervisor, the RACGP will work with you to source an accredited remote-supervisor to ensure that your WBA’s are completed on time and that you are supported as you progress through the program.


Yes, it is expected that your practice, and GP Supervisor meet specified criteria of RACGP Standard’s for General Practice Training (3rd Edition) (The Standards). Your practice, and Supervisor must meet the Standards by the end of your first term in the program. If you are working in a practice that has not previously been accredited for GP training, the RACGP will support you and your practice to achieve the required standard.


If your practice is accredited to take part in the AGPT program, it is assumed that they will meet the requirements of the FSP. This will be confirmed upon application.


The RACGP will work closely with your practice team to ensure that they are able to meet the standards. A guidance document, outlining specific requirements will be made available to practices that do not hold accreditation for the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) program.


No, you will have the opportunity to take part in face-to-face and online small group and workshop learning and networking activities. You will also have access to the RACGP’s online learning modules, which are based on the curriculum and focus on exam preparation.
