This section of the website gives guidance on the entry criteria listed in the 2018 CT1 person specifications for ACCS-AM and CMT; the two specialties have identical entry criteria.

There is a separate section for each of the five main areas of the entry criteria, plus a sixth page for the remaining requirements:


Please check your eligibility status before applying

Upon submitting your CT1 application, it will be assessed against the essential entry criteria. If the application does not demonstrate that all criteria are met, it will be regarded as ineligible for CT1.

Before applying please check that you meet the eligibility criteria, and consider how you will demonstrate this (if necessary). 

UK foundation trainees

Whilst candidates expecting to complete a UK foundation training prior to August 2018 (or who have completed one already) are likely to meet all eligibility criteria, we still advise foundation trainees to check the information here prior to applying.
