Advancing paediatric surgery through education and research

Could you be a sub-specialty curator for our website?

Are you the go to person for your sub-specialty?

Are you always the first to read the latest research papers? Do you know of the latest techniques, news and developments ahead of your peers? If so BAPS needs your expertise.

We’ve just launched the new BAPS website. A new feature is our subspecialty micro-sites which will feature the latest information about each subspecialty as well as background information. Could you lend your expertise and support by becoming the curator for a subspecialty on our website?

What do these roles involve?

You will work with the BAPS’ web committee chaired by BAPS’ Honsec, the UK’s JPS editor Mark Davenport and Webmaster, Shan Teo, as editor and filter for your subspecialty’s content. You will liaise with your subspecialty peers to provide content for the website which reflects current practices, the latest research, regional news etc. Curators would not be expected to author all the content themselves. Their role would be to review/edit contributions from their committee/specialty body and identify relevant search tags before submitting them for publication on the website.

If more than one nominee applies to represent the same subspecialty, a vote will be taken from the BAPS membership.
