Welcome to the BOMSS trainee page

Trainee Representative: The BOMSS council appreciate their trainee membership and want to involve trainees in the development of the society.  The current trainee representative is Corinne Owers.

Corinne graduated from university of Sheffield in 2006 and trained in and around South Yorkshire. She has a PhD in Bariatric Patient Education and is a Masters of Medical Education.

She says: “I understand the educational side of training and am keen to represent the trainees’ views on the current state of our surgical training pathway. I hope to help increase the trainee membership of BOMSS and will be striving for more trainee sessions at conferences to help with our personal and professional development as future bariatric surgeons.”
