About the RCE

Replacing the OSCE, the Remote Clinical Exam (RCE) is the final exam leading to the award of Fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP). The RCE is delivered entirely remotely and therefore not impacted by COVID-19 restrictions, allowing all eligible candidates to complete this fellowship exam.
