BAPEN Medical committee has vacancies for a surgical trainee member and at least one consultant committee member. BAPEN medical is aimed primarily at doctors with an interest in clinical nutrition and applications from gastroenterologists, surgeons and chemical pathologists would all be welcomed for these positions. Due to the mix of people retiring from the committee this year we would particularly welcome non gastroenterologist applications from consultants – e.g. chemical pathologists, surgeons or intensivists.
The committee meets three times each year – at the main BAPEN meeting and on two other occasions in either London or Birmingham. Each committee member would be expected to contribute actively to some aspect of the committee work, which includes organisation of training days, arranging symposia for BAPEN and other meetings, developing educational modules in nutrition and communicating with the members.
