AKT and KFP Examination support:
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners’ (RACGP) Fellowship exams consist of two written segments:
- Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) – multiple choice test conducted online
- Key Feature Problems (KFP) – multiple choice and short answer test conducted
The RACGP Fellowship exams assess a candidate’s competency for unsupervised general practice anywhere in Australia. Each exam segment has a unique and targeted approach to assessing a candidate’s knowledge and ability. The AKT, KFP and OSCE are held twice per year.
In response to critical medical workforce shortages being experienced across Australia, the Australian Government has implemented measures aimed to provide financial support to doctors in their efforts of achieving fellowship of either the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) or the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM).
**Please note there are no KFP workshops currently scheduled at QRME. We are in the process of refining the course offering and look forward to providing further details on this in 2020.
Participants have the option of enrolling in:
- 12 Week KFP Webinar program
- 6 Week KFP Webinar program
Webinars run for 2 hours on a weekday evening from 7:30pm to 9:30pm Qld time. Private Coaching sessions can be run during normal work hours.
