Please note your proposer needs to be a consultant.

Trainee member benefits

All members, i.e. both Trainees and Consultants benefit from:

  • Discounts (including Wisepress, Hilton Hotels and the Journal of Pediatric Surgery)
  • Access to Fellowships and Grants
  • Regular newsletters and updates on all aspects of paediatric surgery including jobs, CPD and upcoming events
  • Attendance at Council. Many UK based trainees don’t realise that as BAPS members they can attend our Council Meetings to hear, discuss and debate the latest issues.

Full details about these benefits can be found here.

In addition, Trainee members also benefit from a discount of £10 on BAPS badged training days and substantial discounts to our Winter Meeting and Annual Congress. BAPS subsidises National Training Days: this year we’ve paid for catering and contributed to lower the cost of attendance.

Also do remember to claim back your subs as they are tax deductible.

BAPS office

BAPS staff, Kate Billington and Shan Teo provide support for National Training Days and BAPS badged courses as well as membership matters.They also keep our web pages up to date and liaise with us when Trainee enquiries are directed to the BAPS office.
