How does Zoom teleconferencing work?

Last revised: 04 Aug 2023

How does Zoom teleconferencing work?

The Zoom meeting will have two virtual rooms: applicant lounge and interview room.

In the applicant lounge the RACGP staff member will brief you and check your valid ID. You will be required to use your camera to show the RACGP administrator the physical space of the room where you are completing your interview. This is to ensure that there are no resources to aid you in your interview.

You will need to choose your own venue, which must be private, quiet and have a stable internet connection. It is the applicant’s responsibility to source an alternative way to access the internet and log in to the interview in case you have technical issues on the day.

When you are ready, you will be admitted into the interview room where the interview panel members are waiting. For each clinical scenario, the panel will share the applicant instructions using the share screen function. This remains on the screen for the duration of the scenario except when, in some scenarios, you might be given additional information during the questioning. An applicant may be moved back to the applicant lounge in the event of technical problems or anomalies.

When you have completed all clinical scenarios, the chair will provide an exit briefing. You can leave the interview by clicking on ‘Leave’ and then ‘Leave meeting’.
