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 before completing your application if you are interested in taking up a programme in this specialty.
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.
One factor you may wish to consider is the competitiveness of each region. The previous years' data page contains information on applications and competition ratios from recent years.
In round 1 you will be able to choose up to four regions at which you wish to be considered in order of preference.
Initially your application will be assessed for eligibility by the region you choose as your first preference on the application form. The short-listing process will determine whether and at which of your regional preferences you can be invited to interview and subsequently considered for offers. The document library contains information on the minimum scores and percentage of first choice applicants short-listed for each region.
In round 2 all candidates initially apply for all the ACCS-AM/CMT vacancies available nationally and after application will be invited to select their programme preferences. You will be able to choose as many or as few of the programmes available as you wish.
