The ACRRM stage 2 assessment with GP Synergy will be in the format of Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs).
Applicants will be required to answer six interview questions, asked by six different interviewers. Applicants will have eight minutes to answer each question and will have two minutes reading time.
For additional information about the interviews, please contact ACRRM.
We are unable to accept preference requests in advance. This is because we will not know if you have been successful in passing the stage 1 assessment. Interview bookings will be made via a booking platform on a first come first served basis.
Please contact ACRRM to discuss options for remote interviews.
If you are late to your interview you will not be able to join your allocated timeslot. Allocation to another time/date cannot be guaranteed.
If you experience exceptional circumstances and you cannot attend your allocated interview date you must call the contact person on your confirmation email ASAP. Please note: We cannot guarantee additional interview spaces on other times/dates will be available.
Within each NSW/ACT training region (Western NSW, North Eastern NSW and Lower Eastern NSW) there are different subregions. Applicants who are successful in being offered a training place will be allocated to a subregion on offer, and will be required to complete their GP term training within this subregion.
Training offers, and subregion allocation, will be made by on the basis of their stage 1and 2 assessment scores up to the number of training places available. Subregion priority preferencing is available to some applicants.
Further about our subregions and training location requirements is outlined in the GP Synergy Applicant Pack.
Not all applicants may receive an offer. This may be due to some applicants being determined as being unsuitable or there may not be enough places available as each training region may be shortlisted more applicants than there are places available.
Unsuccessful candidates may invited to participate in a subsequent round of selection, however it is important to note there is no guarantee of subsequent rounds, and if there are, the number and location of training places may be limited.
Applicants will be notified if they have been successful to be made an offer by 5pm Monday 3 August 2020.
After you accept an offer, you will be required to complete an orientation and induction module, and contact us to arrange an induction meeting with a medical educator. This may be by phone, zoom or face to face.
During this meeting, the medical educator will talk to you about your experience and training plans including mandatory terms, recognition of prior learning and how the GP term placement process works, as well as other important information to prepare for your GP career.
If you decline your training offer, you may be invited to participate in later rounds of selection. However, there is no guarantee of a further selection rounds, and if there is one, the number and location of training places may be limited.
