If your specialist qualification is not listed above, your training curriculum has not been assessed by the RACGP. Your curriculum must be assessed before you can apply for a comparability assessment. To have your curriculum assessed, please email pathways@racgp.org.au

Curriculum assessments take up to 10 weeks to assess. Currently, the RACGP is processing a high volume of applications and this may result in delay to curriculum and comparability assessment outcomes. To assist with your application, please ensure that you refer to the Guide to completing the comparability assessment. Assessors will review your specialist colleges’ curriculum against the RACGP curriculum
