Subscription Rates

Membership at the British Orthopaedic Association comes in many different categories to suit all stages of your career. At our 2012 Annual General Meeting it was decided to add a Congress Supplement to the subscription, that will allow our members to register for the Annual Congress for free* during the 'early bird' registration period.
