The doctors in training group represents all junior doctors in sexual health, GUM and HIV, including specialist registrars, ST doctors and locum training posts. Elected junior doctors sit on the BASHH Board, Specialty Advisory Committee, BASHH Education Committee and the BASHH Clinical Governance Committee. This allows for effective representation of junior doctors’ views and feedback on relevant issues.

Doctors in Training BASHH Regional Representatives
We have a network of GUM specialist trainees who represent each region of the UK. The regional rep holds a list of all trainees in their area allowing information to be disseminated. It also allows trainees from around the UK to share opinions, surveys, and collaborate on projects.
You can also contact the rep from your region for more information about training in sexual health and for signposting to opportunities to shadow.
Other junior doctors who wish to be included in the network should contact the rep in their area.
If you notice any errors in the list, or would like to volunteer to be the rep in your region, please contact trainees@BASHH.org
