We know that passing the KFP exam is the biggest barrier to achieving your fellowship. Our mission is to provide a quality study experience, practising cases that are complex, reviewed to align with the RACGP curriculum, and developed for their learning value. Learning by being taught is essential, and so is learning by doing. We make it easy to ‘do’ KFP study.
KFP Online first offered a case bank for the RACGP exam in 2017. We set out to do something completely new to support KFP exam candidates – to create a large case bank and a dedicated platform for studying KFP cases. These features continue to be important to make it easy to practice KFP cases. Since then we’ve built up the case bank, combined the learning resources of KFP Online with KFP Prep (a second and high-quality case bank for learning clinical reasoning) and comprehensively reviewed and updated cases.
We know first hand that studying for the KFP exam is long and hard. We get real satisfaction supporting doctors to grow in confidence and feel well prepared for the exam. This is one of life’s great journeys as a doctor to complete credentialing and we are committed to being with you on this journey.
KFP online is study tool designed to assist in developing your clinical reasoning and improve your performance during the FRACGP KFP Exam. KFP Online has been used as a study aid by over 2000 trainees since it’s development 2017. The Case bank has now been completely revised for 2021-2022 by leading medical educators Dr Tamara Nation and Dr Dev Raga.
We are truly independent and unfunded by corporates, large organisations or big business – being “grass roots and keeping it real”
I commenced General Practice in my mid-thirties after pursing a surgical career, undertaking a PhD and having 3 children! Returning to study and clinical medicine was a daunting experience. My peers had moved on, I was unfamiliar with the syllabus and it had been a while since I’d been in clinical practice. At first the fellowship exams seemed like an impossible hurdle to pass, juggling work, mothering and study – how could it be achieved? I think there were no quick fixes or shortcuts to getting through. It was a difficult time of relentless study and practising questions.
I had a study group, I undertook different prep courses, I put my social and family life on hold. All this helped achieve my end point – RACGP fellowship and freedom. However, one of the most daunting hurdles was preparation for the KFP. There was lack of quality study materials and they were often not presented in a way that was similar to the exam. That led me to start KFP Online.
It’s now 4 years on since KFP Online was founded and the exam has evolved as to has the landscape. I am still proud to share with you KFP Online (it’s now fully revised), so much of what we do is free and unfunded: teaching, community, mentoring. KFP Online really encapsulates “paying it forward” as so many of my medical mentors and teachers have done for decades. I hope that for both subscribers and non-subscribers you find both support and value in our service.
And good luck with your KFP!
I completed my medical school in Hobart, Tasmania and completed internship and residency at The Royal Melbourne Hospital. I subsequently engaged in Surgical training for 4 years after which I pursued a full time career in General Practice. During my surgical and GP years, I was actively involved in teaching at Monash University as a clinical tutor. I completed my General Practice Training with Southern GP Training.
I am passionate about education and continue to teach medical students at Deakin University. I also teach online as an administrator for the national Facebook group for GP registrars (4000+ members). My clinical passions are GP geriatrics and emergency/urgent care.
I have been running KFP exam preparation courses since 2015, and more recently offer my cases using the KFP Online platform. My aim is to ensure registrars learn about the purpose of the KFP, understanding case construction, and I aim to provide feedback to each registrar with respect to their KFP technique.
Studying for the fellowship exams requires clinical knowledge as well some acumen on the technical aspects of the exam. I also upload podcasts about the RACGP exams which can be accessible via a Facebook group. I also provide webinars for candidates before exams, and have developed podcast episodes on Soundcloud.
