Pre-employment Structured Clinical Interview - Applicant technical guide
All Pre-employment Structured Clinical Interviews (PESCI) will be conducted online using Zoom videoconferencing. The interview may last up to 90 minutes.
The interview panel will have three members in total, a chair and two other members. The primary purpose of the chair is to guide the panel in their preparation for the PESCI. The chair is responsible for leading discussion on the applicant’s performance,and reflecting the panel findings in the report they prepare for the Medical Board of Australia. There will be five scenarios based on the types of patient presentations you can expect to encounter in general practice in Australia.
You will have three minutes reading time for each scenario and then 10 minutes to answer a series of questions based on the patient presentations.
This technical guide covers the technical aspects of the interview. It should be read in conjunction with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Pre-employment Structured Clinical Interview Policy, Pre-employment Structured Clinical Interview handbook, and other resources and policies available on the PESCI website.
