Welcome to the CT1 recruitment website!
If you are looking to apply to CT1-level posts in the programmes of core medical training (CMT) and/or acute care common stem: acute medicine (ACCS-AM), this website contains detailed information to help you. This covers recruitment to CT1 post across all regional recruitment bodies in the UK.
Recruitment to CT1 posts starting in August 2015 has been completed. Recruitment for 2016 posts starts from November 2015, see the timeline page of the website for details.
Whilst the information on the website at the moment directly applies to recruitment for 2015, most will still be applicable to 2016 so we have left it up as a guide for prospective applicants. The website will be updated in autumn 2015 and we will post a news item when this has been completed.
If you cannot find an answer to a question, the JRCPTB runs an email helpdesk which can be contacted with any queries relating to CT1 recruitment. Normally, the JRCPTB will respond to all queries within 48 hours (excluding bank holidays and weekends).
To contact the helpdesk, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any important announcements will be added to this website and noted in the news section, as well as being announced on our twitter feed; please click either the link or the twitter button (above left) to access our twitter feed and follow us there.
