Trainee Enews January 2024

posted in: Trainee News | 0

Welcome to the second BTOG trainee newsletter, where we aim to provide you with updates relevant to trainees working in the thoracic oncology space. In terms of content, the trainee newsletter will seek to summarise the ‘hot-off-the-press’ landmark papers, list updates for trainee-led multicentre projects, and sign-post readers to useful educational/professional content.

We are also interested in hearing what you would like from BTOG, following on from the great ideas proposed at the trainee session in Belfast at BTOG 2023, which will shape how BTOG caters for trainee needs in the future.

Please do use the BTOG trainee group-chat on Slack to continue your thoracic cancer conversations in the meantime. Feel free to contact the BTOG trainee representatives, Anand and Gerard, at anand.sundaralingam@ndm.ox.ac.uk or g.walls@qub.ac.uk
