What are the interviews?
Both medical colleges (ACRRM and RACGP) have different interview processes. The interview process is typically conducted with your chosen Regional Training Organisation (RTO) involved. The interviews give the RTO a chance to get to know you and to assess your suitability to become a GP.
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.
