The Practice Experience Program – Specialist Stream is the pathway to Fellowship of the RACGP available to specialist international medical graduates (SIMGs). Previous iterations of this pathway include the Specialist Pathway Program (SPP), which ran from 2010 to 2018, and categorised SIMGs as Category 1, 2 or 3; and the Specialist Recognition Program (SRP), which superseded the SPP from 2018 to 2019 following release of updated Medical Board of Australia Guidelines – Supervised Practice of International medical graduates
From 1 September 2019, the specialist pathway to Fellowship will fall under the RACGP’s Practice Experience Program as a specialist stream.
