The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP)

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) is Australia’s largest and longest standing general practice organisation. The RACGP is widely recognised as a leader in the provision of general practice education and training and has supported more than 35,000 members including 23,000 GPs, to achieve Fellowship since 1958. For the next intake of the Australian General Practice Training (AGPT) Program, the RACGP will be responsible for the selection of 90% of rural and metropolitan candidates seeking to enter the AGPT Program.

Candidate Assessment Applied Knowledge Test (CAAKT)

There are two main phases in the RACGP selection process, the first of which is undertaking the Candidate Assessment Applied Knowledge Test (CAAKT).

The CAAKT consists of two types of questions: knowledge test questions and situational judgement test questions. Candidates should book their CAAKT as soon as possible to secure their preferred location. Candidates can select to undertake their assessments in any state or territory, subject to availability, when they book online. Any associated travel costs are the responsibility of the candidate.

Only candidates who have applied for the AGPT Program through the RACGP and been deemed eligible by the Department of Health are able to sit this test.

Practice Experience Program Entrance Assessment (PEPEA)

The PEPEA consists of two question types - clinical Applied Knowledge questions and Situational Judgement Test (SJT) questions. Candidates are strongly advised to schedule their PEPEA as soon as possible to secure a placement in their preferred location. Candidates can elect to undertake their assessment in any state or territory, subject to availability, when they book online. Any associated travel costs are the responsibility of the candidate.

Only candidates who have applied for the Practice Experience Program (PEP) through the RACGP and been deemed eligible to sit the PEPEA are able to undertake this assessment.
