Clinical Examination Preparation Program

The Clinical Examination Preparation Program (CEPP) is a preparation course for basic physician trainees sitting the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) clinical examination.

Course content

The program covers the key subspecialty topics that are relevant to the clinical exam as well as common mistakes in the long case and short case, and practical advice on exam preparation.

It is designed as an adjunct to other clinical exam preparation - for example, hospital-based long case and short case preparation - and as such, it does not include live long or short case presentations.

In 2022 the course content will be delivered over a series of evenings and a weekend.
