Pre-employment Structured Clinical Interview - Assessor technical guide



All Pre-employment Structured Clinical Interviews (PESCI) will be conducted online using Zoom videoconferencing. The interview may last up to 90 minutes.

Applicants will be presented with five scenarios based on the types of patient presentations they can expect to encounter in general practice in Australia.

Applicants 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 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.
