It is relatively common for a GP registrar to fail one (or more than one) of the component/s of the RACGP fellowship exam. Understandably, registrars often turn to their practice supervisors for advice and support if this occurs.
They may ask questions like:
- I have only just failed - is it worth appealing the decision?
- I was unwell at the time of the exam - can I apply for special consideration?
- Can I get exam feedback from the RACGP?
- I'm running out of training time - can I apply for an extension?
- I've run out of training time completely - can I sit my exam again if I get "kicked out" of training?
- I've failed three times and have to do something called a "Just Cause" - what is that?
- Can you help me prepare for next time?
Held on Wednesday, 21 February 2018 at 5pm, Dr Genevieve Yates will be presenting on supporting registrars who fail exams as well as exam failure prevents.
At the end of the session you will be able to:
- direct registrars to the relevant policies and procedures relating to RACGP examinations
- help registrars to develop a personalised exam study plan, focusing on their weak areas
- facilitate registrars' incorporation of clinical reasoning skills into everyday practice
- vigilantly monitor registrar mental health and wellbeing following an exam failure
