Junior Trainees' Group
The Junior Trainees' Group (JTG) of the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (BAOMS) is for junior trainees and by junior trainees
It acts to represent those with an interest in OMFS who are in the early stages of their careers. Typically, this includes dentists and doctors contemplating embarking on a second degree in medicine or dentistry, those studying a second degree and those who are dual qualified but yet to enter specialist training in OMFS. We aim to promote the issues and interests of junior trainees at a national level, but also act as a point of contact and communication for trainees throughout the land. We aim to give advice and support those from before their first degree all the way through until they pass their fellowship exams.

What the JTG Offers
Each year the JTG organises a conference specifically aimed at junior trainees. This gives trainees the opportunity to give oral and poster presentations, listen to speakers who are experts in their field but also to mingle with their peers. The number of junior trainees that attend grows each year reflecting the growing interest in our unique speciality at a junior level. We would encourage all junior trainees to attend if possible as it is an excellent opportunity to get to know people at the same level of training as you; people who you will be working with for many years to come.
