Could you take on a Committee Role?

Are you a doctor in training with an interest in pain medicine? We are a group of proactive and enthusiastic trainees looking for new colleagues from F1-ST8.

The PainTrain Committee previously co-ordinated the national GABACUTE study. Many of our original members have gone on to CCT and are developing impressive research and editorial careers as consultants. At present a small group of us meet virtually approximately monthly to help coordinate our program of educational activities and hope to launch some exciting new research projects over the next year.

If you would like to join committee please email a <400 word statement on which available role you would like and why before the 8th of September to . We are also happy to accepting applications from candidates who would prefer to apply for any general committee role rather than a specific post. 

Should more than one applicant apply for a particular post all applicants to that post will be informed if there are any other available opportunities that they might wish to consider in the case of not being sucessful. Candidates will be shortlisted and voted for at our online virtual AGM on Thursday 28th of September at 7pm (via microsoft teams).
