President’s Monthly Update – June 2022

Dear Members,

Greetings & hope you are coping with the heatwave! Highlights from the last month.

First of all, we are pleased to announce that Mr. Justin Green was successful at the BHS-ORUK Fellowship interview. Justin is an early year’s orthopaedic registrar who has been involved in clinical informatics and AI innovation within healthcare.

Second, we also interviewed for the popular BHS-AHS Travelling Fellowship due to commence in September this year.  James Sheldon and  Sunil Kumar were successful at the interview and will be joining Anna Cohen-Rosenblum and Cody C. Wyles from USA as they travel together to centres of excellence in the UK over a three week period, culminating at the annual BOA Congress in Birmingham.

Many congratulations to Justin, James and Sunil on well-deserved success at these competitive interviews.

Third, the 2023 BOA Future Leaders Programme (FLP) has been launched, and applications are now open. BHS will be sponsoring one fellow on the 2023 FLP. This place is only open to members of BHS. Applications will close on 5th September 2022.
