The newest stream of overseas doctors are coming to Australia in the form of exceptional Partially Comparable GPs. What sets them apart? Not only do these GPs bring their wealth of experience after completing specialist qualifications in their home country, but they also boast the unique ability to bill at the same A1 rates as their Australian GP counterparts.
Partially Comparable GPs under the RACGP’s PEP Specialist Stream are a distinct cohort. This pathway to work in Australia and ultimately FRACGP is unique to General Practice. Typically commencing with level 2 or 3 supervision from the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA), these doctors quickly integrate into the Australian healthcare landscape. Unlike non-comparable doctors who require extensive supervision and PESCIs, as well as years of work prior to exams, these Partially Comparable GPs are ready to provide quality care from the outset.
One of the other key advantages of recruiting Partially Comparable GPs is their ability to remain at your practice without the need for periodic transitions common among registrars. These doctors are committed to long-term engagement, offering stability and continuity to your healthcare team.
Imagine the impact on your bottom line when you not only attract highly qualified specialists but also maximize billing potential. Our Partially Comparable GPs present an unparalleled opportunity to enhance both the clinical and financial aspects of your practice.
While our Partially Comparable GPs operate similarly to substantially comparable GPs or their Australian counterparts, there is an extra step to their journey – the completion of the FRACGP exams after their first year in Australia.
