Non Specific Question

[Candidates will be given a warning about this prior to interview]
Prepare 2 cases to discuss with the panel. One should be a case you found personally interesting. The other should be a case where something went wrong. In both cases ensure you discuss what you learnt from them.

General Practice Training

This question looks at personal and professional development: What have you done up to this point to prepare yourself for general practice training. N.B. - Excellent candidates would specifically discuss what personal and professional development they have done to address community needs eg. they are aware Australia has an aging population so specifically picked an aged care or general medicine term, another eg. is they are aware GPs often see a lot of paediatric patients so in their ED term they made the effort to discuss with their team leader to be rostered into paediatric section.
