Since 2011, the Trainees Section has become one of the largest and most vibrant bodies within the Society, further developing and delivering training, education, leadership, representation and networking for registrars across the UK.
The Trainees Section organise a number of well-recognised events, including the Management and Leadership Weekend, the Education Weekend and the Taster Weekend, as well as playing an important role in the programme of the BSG Annual Meeting. Trainees have representation on every BSG committee and have led on a number of important initiatives, including writing national BSG guidelines. You can find information on the Trainees Section Committee on their page.
Our ‘taster’ membership is designed for junior doctors in the early years of their training (below ST3) and medical, nursing or scientific students. This gives you a taste of membership of the Society before committing to full Trainee membership. Click here to find out more.
