Have questions in mind? Let’s Answer Those

Practice makes perfect! That is why GP Academy offers 4 full-length mock exams (AKTx2 & KFPx2) for the written components of the RACGP fellowship exams. These online exams aim to simulate the actual fellowship examinations and are only available to the written course participants.

The AKT mock exams contain 150 questions that must be completed within 4 hours. These conditions are the same as the RACGP exams. Candidates will be provided with their score and model answers. The KFP mock exam contains 26 cases that must be completed within 3.5 hours. Candidates will be provided with detailed answers after the completion of the exams.

Q-Banks, also known as Question-Banks, is a collection of verified questions which have been selected and refined by GP Academy. These questions have been designed to be a valuable preparation tool for the RACGP examinations. You will get to practice over 1200 AKT questions along with over 320 KFP cases (925 questions) on the platform throughout your AKT+KFP course.

It is required that you purchase a headset with a built-in microphone if you wish to attend the “Live.Online” sessions. We recommend purchasing a Logitech H540/ H390 or similar from JB HiFi or other electrical stores for approximately $60. This is because regular headphones intended for everyday use do not reduce background noise, which can be disruptive to the sessions and may result in you being unable to actively participate.

We highly recommend you purchase an online version of J Murtagh’s 7th Edition for use in the Written Exam courses, as we frequently suggest readings from this textbook.

PLEASE NOTE: Discount codes must be requested prior to registering and utilised at the time of registration. GP Academy is not able to apply a discount or process a discount code after registration is processed.

GP Academy has stopped providing separate single courses because we strongly believe that the preparation process and knowledge required for each exam is very similar. Regardless of which exam the candidate needs to prepare for, the materials that they need to study are almost identical. The AKT and KFP both cover the same subjects in General Practice, only the style of question is different. For more information about specific courses, please refer to the relevant “Course Program”, located on the “Course Options” page.

The courses are designed to prepare candidates for the specific RACGP exam dates. Access to the portal is available until close of business on the examination date. 

The Student Portal is carefully designed for each course and is de-activated following each exam. Therefore, extensions to the portal after the exam date is not possible.

All materials are online and are unable to be downloaded. They are available only for the duration of each course.

Should you wish to access our study materials after the relevant courses examination date, you will need to re-enrol into a later course.

As a returning candidate, you are entitled to a discount on this enrolment.

Discount codes must be requested prior to registering and utilised at the time of registration. GP Academy is not able to apply a discount or process a discount code after registration is processed.

Yes! Thanks to high-speed Internet and the GoToWebinar teleconferencing system, the online courses allow all participants to interact just as well as the face-to-face sessions. The online sessions have made it easy for participants to attend all of our courses from anywhere in the world! Feedback from our previous attendees who have attended both forms have stated that both formats were equally valuable.

This is a very common question with no simple answer! The preparation required for each individual depends on his or her prior knowledge and experience. On average, it is recommended that candidates spend about 4-5 months studying for the written exams.

The RCE is harder to put a recommended time frame on, as it is very much dependent on the individual. Nonetheless, the RCE requires a lot of practice! The examiners are looking for how competent you are as a health professional. They are looking to see if you are able to make the patient feel comfortable and satisfied with the care received. Typically, examiners are looking for candidates to establish a strong rapport and provide a clear explanation to the patient before demonstrating competent medical knowledge.

GPs working in rural and remote locations may be eligible for funding under the Rural Health Workforce Scholarship Program (HWSP).  Please contact the Rural Workforce Agency in your state or territory for more information.

We do not guarantee that you will pass the exams by taking these courses. GP Academy provides participants with all the resources required to pass each exam, however, your success is determined by several factors including your effort put into studying, medical knowledge and skills.

Of course! GP Academy courses are beneficial to all GPs regardless of their circumstances. Our courses are very dynamic and the topics discussed are constantly updated. However, there will still be aspects of the RACGP exams that frequently reoccur, so attending these courses will still be helpful.

The usual exam references include: John Murtagh textbook, Checks, Australian guidelines and AJGP (AFPs). All of the topics that we cover are supported by references. The "Student Portal" provides you with all the information you need to plan your studying without the hassle of searching for what you need to read. 

For RCE, GP Academy provides a large number of additional Clinical Examination cases, educational videos, Case.Videos and study materials throughout the course. For more information, please read the “Information Package” and “Course Program” for your desired course.

Introducing The GP Academy newest course offering – the Comprehensive CCE!
