Professional Review interview

The Professional Review interview is one of two essential elements in our Professional Review process.

The other element of Professional Review is the relevant exam.


What’s involved?

The interview tests your ability and ensures that you have satisfied all the core objectives within your Initial Professional Development (IPD).

You may attempt the interview before or after the exam, depending on what suits you best. 


Interview format

The interview normally lasts one hour. This includes around 10 minutes for you to make a presentation that explains how you have met your IPD objectives. 

Reviewers will try to help you by asking appropriate questions, but it's essential that you can demonstrate how you have achieved all of your core objectives. 


Apply for the interview

Submit an Expression of Interest form to be entered into the first available interview. We’ll get back to you and ask you to submit:

  • Your (PRI) interview form, indicating your interview preferences
  • An IPD final report form for each of your core objectives


Application deadline

Submit your Expression of Interest form at any time during the year and you will be entered into the first available interview or exam.
