Core Medical Training & ACCS-AM

CMT and ACCS-AM recruitment is a combined recruitment programme in 2012, but training in CMT and ACCS-AM posts are managed within different programmes within the Oxford Deanery.

CMT training

The Oxford Deanery is the smallest UK deanery, and is composed of three counties – Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

Trainee satisfaction

A high standard of training, supervision, and teaching delivered to all our CMT trainees have contributed to our trainees rating the Oxford Deanery one of the top five programmes in the 2013 GMC Survey.

Added to this, 96% of trainees who commenced their CMT training with us in 2011 and 2012 achieved PACES by the completion of their training before leaving to take up higher specialty training posts.

Teaching and the development of learning opportunities are a priority in CMT. A wealth of quality improvement projects, audit and research opportunities augment the training programme in both the tertiary centre of the Oxford Radcliffe NHS Trust, and also in the District General Hospital environment. The development of future collaborations and research opportunities with the University of Oxford becomes a real possibility.

Quality Improvement & research

Trainees are encouraged to learn and develop skills in putting into practice quality improvement projects and will be given the training to enable embedding these new skills to take on further in their future. The development of future collaborations and research opportunities with the University of Oxford become a real possibility.

Trainees

The trainees’ needs are very much at the forefront of our training programme. The trainees are supported throughout their two year training programme by their educational supervisor, a RCP College Tutor in each hospital and by the CMT Training Programme Director.
