About the College's Education Advisory Group (EAG)

The EAG provides the Board, chief executive and senior management team with expert advice for our education and training programmes.

Dr Kerryn Lum

The Censor-in-Chief oversees the quality of the formative and summative assessment of registrars in the General Practice Education Programme (GPEP), which ultimately leads to Fellowship.

The role of the Censor-in-Chief is supported by the College’s Censors, Assessors, Chief Examiner and GPEP Examiners.

Chief Examiners

Dr Sandra Jessop - Clinical | Dr Michael Oehley - Written

Chief Examiners oversee the summative assessments that registrars usually sit at the end of the first year of the GPEP.

They are responsible for ensuring that the examination process is fair, that the results are reliable and valid, and that standards of assessment and assessment outcomes are maintained from year to year.
