How do I become a member of the BNTRC committee?

There are three routes to becoming a member of the committee:

  2. Become involved with the BNTA committee: if you a UK neurosurgical trainee - you can become involved with the BNTRC committee by taking the post of BNTA chair or academic representative
  3. Data curator: if you are highly adept at IT data management and web hosting then you could become involved with the committee as the BNTRC data curator
