Reconsideration of a decision

From time to time the RACGP makes decisions about matters other than those which relate to your training program.

If you’re unhappy with the outcome of a decision that isn’t related to your training program, you may apply for a reconsideration of the decision. Reconsiderations are handled by the RACGP national team.

Important things to note if you wish to apply for a reconsideration:

  • Reconsiderations are managed under the Dispute, Reconsideration and Appeals Policy. You should review the policy before applying for reconsideration of a decision.
  • The national team will only consider an application for reconsideration of a decision that isn’t related to your training program (eg. exam results). If you want to dispute a decision relating to your training program, refer to Dispute of a decision.
  • You have 10 business days after we notify you of the original decision to apply for a reconsideration, or two business days if it is related to entry to a training program.

Reconsideration applications attract a fee as they’re not related to your training program. You will need to pay this fee before the decision can be reconsidered.
