Please note: for 2019, in addition to the academic interviews, candidates will be required to attend and pass a clinical interview for the specialty they are applying to for academic training, if appropriate. Offers made will therefore be conditional upon meeting the required standard in the clinical interview. Please check for FAQs for ACF applicants.

Applicants who already hold a clinical NTN or DRN in the same specialty as their ACF application will not need to attend a clinical interview as they will already have met the required standard previously.
