Discover ICM: Find your future career

How does recruitment to Dual programmes work?

Recruitment to Dual progammes takes place by 'stepped' recruitment. Doctors will apply for one CCT programme at one recruitment episode (e.g. ICM in August 2022) and then apply for another CCT programme at a second recruitment episode (e.g. Anaesthetics in August 2023).

If the doctor is successful in both interviews they will be appointed to a CCT programme in both specialties and will be able to form a Dual CCTs programme. The interaction of the two CCTs in the Dual CCTs programme will be agreed by the TPDs (and relevant colleagues) from both specialties in the region.
