This page is to give us students an idea of the benefits of being a BAPO member and for us to understand why this body is so important to the future of our profession!
P&O is a small profession with a great community feel. The annual BAPO conference is a great place to network with innovators, clinicians, technicians and potential employers for your career as a Prosthetist / Orthotist.
By being a member of BAPO you can be kept up-to-date on the latest work which BAPO are doing in many areas to represent us at a national and international level. BAPO are working to increase the awareness of our profession to boost recruitment, bring light to our importance in multi-disciplinary teams and to open up opportunities for us as students and clinicians.
BAPO works on a voluntary basis and always will welcome students onto the committees it runs so they can act as a voice and representatives for all students to ensure that we do not lose sight of where we want to be in the future as a professional body.
If you are a student who would like to help shape your profession into the future and to act as a voice for your peers and colleagues then you should consider a role in one of the committees. For more information please contact the secretariate
