The PEP Standard Stream is a self-directed education program designed to support non–vocationally registered (non-VR) doctors on their journey to RACGP Fellowship.
The PEP aims to provide targeted educational support for non-VR doctors (mostly international medical graduates [IMGs]) to help them deliver quality general practice care to their patients.
From January 2022, it will be compulsory that all RACGP Fellowship exam candidates complete either the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program or the PEP in order to be eligible to obtain Fellowship of the RACGP (FRACGP).
Extraordinary exception: GPE Pathway candidates affected by the 2020.2 AKT and KFP cancellations* will have a six month extension, and will not be required to complete an RACGP-approved program before continuing to sit the Fellowship exams until 1 July 2022 (2022.2 semester).
For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
*affected candidates are those who had a valid enrolment in the 2020.2 AKT and/or KFP as of 9am AEDT Friday 9 October 2020.
