Your application is made jointly for consideration for both ACCS-AM and CMT programmes. Around the time of interview you will be able to preference the available programmes to indicate whether you are interested in: just CMT, just ACCS-AM or both; the programme preferences section details how this process works.
Further information on ACCS-AM and CMT can be found on the JRCPTB website, including details of curricula, assessment methods, details of the training involved, etc. You can also visit the ACCS website for more information on the various ACCS programmes.
Please be aware that not all regions will have ACCS-AM posts available, so please check the dates & posts page for up to date post numbers in each region.
In round 2, it is expected that there will be very few, if any, ACCS-AM posts available.
The website contains a specific regions section, with a page dedicated to each region giving some information on the area and programmes within it. For further information you should go to the relevant region's website; a link is provided on each region's page.
How will I select my preferred region?
When making your application you will not need to give any regional preferences, and will be interviewed in one of a number different venues around the UK (capacity permitting), see the dates & posts page for information. You will remain in contention for all ACCS-AM/CMT vacancies available nationally - not just those in the region at which you are interviewed. And, when you are invited to give your preferences, there will be no restriction on how many posts you can choose.
Eligible candidates will be contacted in mid to late February to begin choosing programme preferences. Preference information will include the particular area/hospital locations, specialties covered, etc.
More information can be found on the programme preferences page.
