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 should contain all the information you need.
Every CMT/ACCS-AM CT1 post across the 17 'units of application' (deaneries, regional recruiting bodies) in the whole of the UK - England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales included - will be entered into the CT1 recruitment process described on this website.
As in previous years, CT1 recruitment will be managed and coordinated by the Royal College of Physicians specialty recruitment office (RCP-SRO), as has been the case since 2008, in conjunction with the JRCPTB.
Interviews in 2013 round 1 (R1) are now complete; but the round will continue as deaneries/UoAs continue to cascade offers to candidates as posts become available.
While R1 offers continue, a second round (R2) of recruitment to 2013 CT1 posts will begin (opening 19 March 2013).
More information can be found on the round 2 & clearing page of this website.
