Application Streams

The four ACCS, or Acute Care Common Stem, streams share a curriculum, however, ACCS Emergency Medicine applications, ACCS Acute Medicine applications, ACCS ICM, and ACCS Anaesthesia applications are all managed separately. All ACCS streams usually follow Foundation Year 2, with the first two years of each stream consisting of the development of the same transferable competences.


ACCS Acute Internal Medicine Applications

Acute Internal Medicine applications and recruitment are managed alongside CMT recruitment. ACCS (AIM) lasts for three years, and trainees have more time to complete PACES, as well as an additional years’ clinical experience. CMT training affords a faster route to completing the MRCP examinations, and allows trainees to being applying for ST3 posts sooner.

ACCS Emergency Medicine Applications

Health Education London and the South East National organise ACCS (EM) recruitment, and, since 2014,  run-through emergency medicine training at ST1 and CT1. Applicants for an ACCS (EM) training post could thereafter accept a post as a CT1 trainee (uncoupled core training), or run-through training starting at ST1. Trainees progressing to ST6 do so in continuous run-through training. Those trainees undertaking uncoupled training first complete CT1-3, and then apply and attend an interview for competitive recruitment to ST4. However, the ST4 post may not be in the same deanery or LETB.

ACCS Anaesthesia Applications

The National Recruitment Office at Health Education West Midlands organises recruitment to CT1, and also ST3. Recruitment occurs twice a year for August and February start dates, and applicants must use the online Oriel system. The ANRO carry out their work on behalf of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. Unfortunately, candidates who are looking to change streams must re-apply and go through competitive selection once again.

ACCS ICM Applications

The Intensive Care Medicine National Recruitment Office (ICMNRO) at Health Education England working across the West Midlands is the responsible organisation for coordinating ST3 recruitment to Intensive Care Medicine (ICM) specialty training posts within the NHS. This responsibility is carried out on behalf of the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (FICM) throughout England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
