Document-based assessment overview

The first phase of the RACS specialist assessment process consists of a document based assessment.

The document-based assessment involves assessments by the RACS Clinical Director, IMG Assessment and Support and IMG Representative of the relevant Specialty Board.

The recommendations which may arise from the document-based assessment include:

  • Not Comparable
  • An interview to finalise assessment.

If your application is assessed as not comparable, you will be recommended to undertake further training. No interview is required and the interview component of the assessment fee will be refunded.

You may be eligible to apply for the RACS Surgical Education and Training (SET) program provided you meet the eligibility criteria.
