BOA 2021 Election

Trustee nominations have now closed for the BOA 2021 Election, however nominations for the President remain open until 17:00 on Tuesday 1st June 2021.

We believe that Trauma and Orthopaedics should be an inclusive surgical profession that inspires, attracts and retains the best talent from a wide variety of backgrounds. One of the ways we can make that a reality is by ensuring we elect a Council that fully represents all our members and better reflects the population we serve.

You have the opportunity to bring your skills and expertise to help us grow and develop the BOA and Trauma and Orthopaedics as a whole. A more diverse BOA, and a broader range of voices, better serves our patients and best supports our colleagues and we welcome all applications.


The role of President is a significant undertaking and requires a four year commitment. The successful candidate will hold the roles of Vice-President Elect, Vice-President, President and Immediate Past President and for the period April 2022-September 2023 will take up the position of Editor of the JTO.

Applicants must be a current Home Fellow and should hold or have previously held an elected position on the BOA Council.

How to Apply

If you are eligible to apply and would like to be considered for the position of President, we would love to hear from you. The BOA is fully committed to equality of opportunity and we particularly welcome applications which will increase the diversity of Council.
