If you are interested in dual accreditation, then it is always an advantage of having as much medical experience as possible. As such, completing ACCS will give you greater exposure / time in medicine and acute specialties. The majority of dual accredited trainees undertake the ACCS pathway. There are no published cut off scores for shortlisting. My advice would be to develop your CV as much as possible in the time available to give you the best chance. I would advise you speak with your local anaesthetic college tutor for further info.
It looks like you are interested in T & O. Last year there were 3.4 applicants per 1 place on the core surgical training program. To do T & O as ST3 you will need to have >10 months of T & O in your core training program. Having a portfolio that demonstrates a commitment to T & O (member of the society, attendance at meetings, cases in portfolio) all help & obviously an elective experience with appropriate reflection will also help. Please refer to Royal College of Surgeons web site and in particular their orthopaedic link. Talking to your local sub speciality lead would also be useful.You haven't provided a name or e mail for me to reply to directly.
GPs will often develop there own special nterests during their career. This is one of the attractions of the role as you can move from one clinical area to another developing skills and knowledge as you go. There are some formal GPSi posts in secondary care aswell as primary care (within PCNs) and usually these will be linked to a development package such as for instance studying for the relevent diploma. Because GP Training is such a codensed and compressed training schedule over 3 years, the GP School would normally not recommend any diplomas until settled into a salaried or partnership role after CCT/MRCGP. Achieving MRCGP should remain the focus of training alongside gaining the skills and knowledge required to be a good GP.
You will be applying for the specialty initially. In the period between submitting an application and offers being made, applicants will be asked to specify their regional/geographical preferences. Preference choices are ranked in Oriel. Further details can be found at:
It would be unusual for an academic fellowship to be advertised for ST1 level as usually its important to become established in that training pathway. In GP training the academic fellowships are ST2 and ST3. I believe that is true of the other specialty programmes. If you are referring to the academic clinical fellowship scheme, there are some medical specialties that advertise academic rotations where during the core training, 75% of the time is clinically related and 25% is research / academic time. ( Further details can be found at: ) These can commence at CT1 level. There would be a seperate application process for the academic fellowships which requires a different emphasis on the application form. There may not be any additional aspects required but the applicant will need to justify their interest in the academic fellowship. In addition

OOP is usually applied for after gaining a training position in whichever specialty you have chosen. Usually, these experiences occur between the first and last years of training, as it takes time to organise, and is not recommended in the final year due to up coming exams/preparation for CCT. All OOPs have to be applied for and agreed in advance (can take months) by the ?Head of School / PG dean (will need to clarify this). They are usually taken out to undertake research or further skills that would not be part of the core curriculum. A good starting point would be to discuss this with your educational supervisor when you are assigned one. The gold guide has more information on OOP: Gold Guide - 8th Edition - Conference Of Postgraduate Medical Deans (
Hi Abigail its good to see your interest in developing your communication skills further. there are 2 routes to GUM training: Core Medical Training (CMT) Acute Care Common Stem - Acute Medicine (ACCS-AM) As part of your speciality training you are expected to learn, develop and consolidate your interpersonal and communication skills that are essential for any medical or surgical speciality but more so while working in a sensitive areas involving sex abuse victims and going by experiences of professionals completing their training, it becomes part of their job routine and with right attitude while approaching helps to learn to protect oneself, if that makes sense. Thanks
