Interviews for round 1 of IMT recruitment in 2021 have been cancelled. Please see our news item for more information.
If you are looking to apply to CT1-level programmes in internal medicine training (IMT) and/or acute care common stem: acute medicine (ACCS-AM), this website contains detailed information to help you. This covers recruitment for all UK training programmes in these specialties.
The recruitment process section of the website is the home to the majority of information to help you navigate a recruitment round, including: dates & posts, eligibility criteria, planning your application, applying, interviews and offers.
In addition to the website, we produce an 'Applicants' Guide' which overviews how the process works and is a good introduction for those new to specialty recruitment; this is available to download from the document library.
You may also wish to view data from previous years, including competition ratios.
Internal medicine training
Internal medicine training replaced core medical training from August 2019. You can read more about the programme and the changes in medical specialty training on the JRCPTB website.
At present only one round of recruitment can be confirmed for programmes starting in August 2021:
- Round 1 opens for applications at 10am on Thursday 5 November and closes at 4pm on Tuesday 1 December 2020.
We can now confirm that there will be no recruitment for IMT 2021 round 2. The next opportunity to apply for IMT will be for 2022 recruitment later this year. Please keep an eye out on the website which will be updated along with a news item when we have more information. IMT 2022 recruitment will follow a similar timeline for 2021 with applications opening around early November.
