New Fellow Survey

Have you finished your specialty training in the past two years? We want to hear about your successes and challenges as a new Fellow.

The early results of the 2021 New Fellow Survey indicate that some preferred areas for further professional development include topics related to:

  • research
  • private practice
  • health systems and advocacy
  • medico-legal advice

The survey is a chance to share your experiences of transitioning from trainee to specialist physician 1 to 2 years after completion of RACP training.


All members who completed a Division, Faculty or Chapter training program between 1 October 2019 and 1 October 2020 are eligible to take the survey.

Take the survey

The survey is open from 13 October to 30 November 2021.

How we use the results

Survey results will inform how we can best support members during this transition period and improve training across Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. For example, your insights will help us to:

  • understand challenges encountered in the transition from trainee to unsupervised professional practice
  • identify areas for training improvements
  • provide tailored support and resources on topics you want to know more about
  • better understand the positions you occupy and the barriers associated with acquiring specialist roles
  • assess the impact of COVID-19 on the transition from trainee to unsupervised professional practice

Your responses are strictly confidential and used for quality improvement purposes. Identifying details will be removed and only aggregated results will be presented.
