The Malaysian government has long encouraged the raising of the standard of general practice through various training programs provided by the Academy of Family Physicians of Malaysia which would eventually lead to a final competency assessment via the Conjoint MAFP/icFRACGP Examination. Successful candidates, having fulfilled all necessary criteria, can then be credentialed, and registered in the National Specialist Register (NSR) as Family Medicine Specialists, along with holders of Masters in Family Medicine.  The Conjoint MAFP/icFRACGP Examination is especially tailored for working GPs in private practice, giving them the flexibility of upgrading themselves without having to leave their own practices.

The main objective of this examination is to enable a valid, reliable, efficient and feasible assessment to a predetermined standard of the competence of the candidate in respect of independent, unsupervised work in general practice/family medicine. Competence is simply the ability to carry out task/s and it is usually defined by the three behavioural attributes of Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes.

Test instruments are available to assess such skills. Conception, design and use of these test instruments in this examination are underpinned by the need and aim to maximise compliance with the criteria of validity, reliability, efficiency, and feasibility alluded to above. The composite of these test instruments constitutes the format of this Conjoint examination.

The Conjoint MAFP/icFRACGP examination consists of the Applied Knowledge Test and the Key Feature Problems for its Part 1 Examination; and the Clinical Competency Examination for its Part 2 Examination.
