What are the interviews?
Both medical colleges (ACRRM and RACGP) have different interview processes. The interview is conducted with the Regional Training Organisation (RTO) currently delivering training in the region you have applied to train in. The interview process assesses your suitability for general practice.
The interviews of both colleges are designed to help you show your ability to:
- think logically
- communicate effectively
- show why you want to be a GP.
Many do not realise the interviews are different to OSCEs, which many of you may have sat during your university years, and do not require ‘specialist’ general practice knowledge as this is something you gain during training.
