How does the application and interview work?Qualified medical doctors who have conditions attached to their medical registration due to health or disciplinary reasons may apply for a position in Australian General Practice Training.
If you do have conditions and you apply for a position in the training program you are required to declare this in your application.
Applicants with conditions are to provide a certificate of good standing or its equivalence from the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Authority so an assessment of the impact of those conditions on their training can be made.
If you are subsequently eligible for an interview with CSQTC, you will be interviewed and scored in the same way as other candidates in your interview and selection round. The panel interviewing you will not know you have conditions and therefore they (your conditions) will have no effect on the outcome of your interview.
Following your interview, your score will be rank ordered with others from the same round and the selection panel will determine the range of interview scores from which offers of places will be made. When the offer list is established, the selection panel will check the candidates for any with conditions to their registration. It will only be at this stage that selection panelists will become aware of your registration conditions.
If you have conditions to your registration and you are in the offer list, you will be given the opportunity of a second interview, this time with a selection review panel which will assess the impact of your conditions on your training at the local level. The panel will consider the impact of your conditions on patient safety, staff, other Registrars, on your own health and on your ability to complete all aspects of the program with CSQTC.
CSQTC does not guarantee that a GP Registrar with conditions or undertakings on their registration will be employed by any of its accredited training posts.
CSQTC reserves the right to impose undertakings and conditions of participation on a GP Registrar with conditions on their registration.
