Victoria primary exam refresher course

This full-time, two week-long intensive course (formerly called part 1) covers many of the core curriculum topics that could be included in the ANZCA primary exam.

It has been specifically designed to assist candidates in their preparation for both the written and oral sections of the exam and will be run largely on a seminar-tutorial basis with short answer questions.

Due to COVID restrictions this course will not be held face-to-face at the college, and will instead be held online via Zoom.


The two week timetable originally scheduled for Monday 16 November to Friday 27 November from 9am-6pm will be amended slightly, due to the rescheduled viva examinations now being held concurrently with the course.

We are planning to avoid scheduling live sessions on these days. There will be a combination of pre-recorded presentations available, and some scheduled evening or weekend sessions outside of the original program to make up for the timetable change.

All sessions will also be recorded so that those attendees who might not be able to attend a particular session(s) will be able to watch them at their leisure.
