The society has over 100 trainee members and they form a vital part of the society. We encourage all trainees in the South West to enroll. The meetings are a worthwhile educational and social event – befriend your colleagues away from work, improve your CV, and learn something too. It’s an absolute myth that SASWR is a society for grey-haired anaesthetists!

As a trainee member, you pay reduced subscription and meeting enrolment fees, and reduced charges for the society dinners. You should consider submitting an article to the Society journal, Points West. Audit, research and general interest articles are warmly welcomed and are a great way to add to your ‘publications’ area of your CV.

There are several bursaries and prizes available to trainee members, as detailed on the Prizes and Bursaries section of the website. The Registrar’s Prize has possibly the most valuable cash award around, and competition (although strong) is less than National prizes, such as GAT.

Visit the membership section of the website to find out about joining. Or contact the SASWR trainee representative to discuss membership of the society.
