GP entry study guide

This guide is subject to change after announcements by the GP National Recruitment Office (GPNRO) in November 2015.

General Practice remains one of the most popular of all the specialties, with about a quarter of all candidates ranking it as their top choice, and more than half likely to apply for it as one of their choices for specialty training.

This guide will help you understand the application and assessment process and help you plan your preparation. The four main stages in the process to secure a place on a GP training rotation are covered in detail, these being:


  1. Online application and longlisting
  2. Computer based assessment - clinical and professional dilemma papers
  3. Selection centre - written prioritisation and simulated consultations
  4. Job allocation
