Practising Certificate

If you are currently in your second year of prevocational training (PGY2) in New Zealand, you will have a practising certificate (PC) with an endorsement that limits you to practising only within prevocational training.

If you were admitted to the General Practice Education Programme (GPEP), you will need to ensure that this endorsement is removed before you will be able to start GPEP.

Please contact the Medical Council of New Zealand for more information on the process of having the endorsement removed, and how to go about ensuring that this occurs before the GPEP programme starts.
