British Rhinoplasty meeting

The British Society of Rhinoplasty Surgeons is pleased to announce the 3rd National Meeting which will take place on Friday April 17th
Distinguished guest speakers include Professor Ron Gruber - the American Rhinoplasty Society Travelling Professor 2015 and Mr Lucian Ion.

The BSRS has trainee and full membership categories. Full members are required to be on the Specialist Registers for either ENT, Plastic Surgery or Maxillofacial Surgery and also have an active rhinoplasty practice. Membership also requires a proposer and seconder who are current members. An annual audit of rhinoplasty practice is submitted by all members.

Trainee members need only show evidence of a training post in one of the above three specialities to apply for membership. 

Full membership and trainee membership allows free attendance at the two national meetings the BSRS hold each year. 
For those surgeons keen to simply attend a meeting without applying for membership, a registration fee of £200 per meeting is required with limited places available depending upon members uptake.

The aims of the society are to foster education and training in rhinoplasty surgery in the UK and provide support for trainees wishing to gain experience in this challenging area of surgery.
