An introduction to the RACGP Fellowship exams

A new Exam Support Online module has been developed, providing a comprehensive introduction to the RACGP Fellowship exams in a user friendly and interactive format;  the first six activities in the module are now available in gplearning for all RACGP members to access at any time.

Candidates should read the exam policies early, to ensure they are aware of the rules regarding when they may sit the exams in the journey towards Fellowship.

All candidates must read the Fellowship Exam Candidate Handbook, and the Exam Eligibility Policy relevant to their Fellowship pathway. These exam policies are available in the policy framework.
