About the Subject

The Foundations of Australian General Practice Course subject teaches medical knowledge and skills for the RACGP AKT and KFP exams. The course works through the RACGP Fellowship syllabus via examination of disease processes, presentation, clinical examination, diagnosis, investigation, and management. The course also reviews the relevant anatomy, physiology, and pathology for all major systems. The course will allow mastery of the theory necessary for building a solid foundation for performance in the RACGP Applied Knowledge Test (AKT) and the RACGP Key Feature Problem (KFP).

This course may be completed in isolation, or in conjunction with other RACGP Fellowship preparation courses in order to prepare for the Key Feature Problem (KFP) exam or Applied Knowledge Test (AKT).

    Subject Structure

    The Foundations of Australian General Practice Course (GP201) aims to develop medical knowledge and skills in 6 core topic areas that cover the breadth of Australian General Practice. Delivered through 21 in-depth and online theory modules, and supported by personalised correspondence with IME's expert academic faculty, the course aims to maximise candidate knowledge in the following core topic areas:

    • Adult Health (Medicine)

    The course also aims to assist GP Registrars in building an extensive knowledge base by directing their efforts more efficiently via specific areas of study and tasks that are relevant to Australian general practice. The breadth and depth of study for the RACGP AKT and KFP is extensively covered and enables registrars to develop knowledge considered fundamental for Australian general practice.
