CT1 Recruitment

Welcome to the CT1 recruitment website!


If you are looking to apply to CT1-level posts in the programmes of acute care common stem: acute medicine (ACCS-AM) and/or core medical training (CMT), this website contains detailed information to help you.

Every ACCS-AM/CMT CT1 post across the 16 regional recruitment bodies in the whole of the UK - England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales included - will be entered into the CT1 recruitment process described here.

2015 recruitment

This website has now been fully updated to reflect information specific to the 2015 CT1 recruitment process.

Applications for the first round of 2015 recruitment will open at 10am (UK time) on Tuesday 11 November 2014 .

Applications will be completed via the Oriel application system, accessed via the link to the right of this page, and must be submitted by 4pm (UK time) on Thursday 4 December 2014 .

All aspects of the application/recruitment process are examined throughout this website, from considering and preparing your application, through making an application, the interview and receiving offers, up to eventual employment.

Please see below for guidance on these stages:


Paragraph sliders

Due to the large amount of information held within this site, paragraph 'sliders' have been employed in many areas to allow this to be better presented.

Wherever a slider ‹ header › is shown, click on the header to reveal the hidden text (as you did above; and as below).

For information on the CT1 recruitment timeline, plus interview dates and post numbers, please visit the dates & posts section of this website.

Details on each participating region are held in the regions area; while data from previous years, including competition ratios, can be found in the previous years' data page.

Information to check before applying includes ensuring you are eligible for a CT1 post in the am I eligible? section, and familiarising yourself with the recruitment process in the how do I apply? section.

As implied, the application form section gives guidance on the Oriel application system, the application form specifically and also the process of making applications more generally.

Successful candidates will proceed to the CT1 interview after applying, and then potentially receive a post offer and employment.

Should you not be able to find the information you are seeking, and/or you have a question relating to CT1 recruitment, you may find the solution in the FAQs section of the website.

The most common queries received by the JRCPTB-SRO have been added here, and grouped into particular categories for ease of use (eligibility, application, interview, etc.)
