Divisional Clinical Examination

The Divisional Clinical Examination (DCE) assesses your clinical and interpersonal skills and clinical acumen to determine if you’ve reached the standards to complete Basic Training.

COVID-19 requirements before sitting the DCE exam

To attend the 2022 Divisional Clinical Examination (DCE), candidates and examiners must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test (RAT), or PCR test, taken within 24 hours before the exam.

If you’ve tested positive for COVID-19 in the 4 weeks before your scheduled exam date and have recovered, you'll need to provide evidence of the positive test, medical certificate or a note from your DPE.

If you've tested positive for COVID-19 and can’t attend the exam, contact us.
