Welcome to the British Junior Cardiologists' Association webpages at the BCS.
Who are we?
The BJCA is your society! We exist to facilitate and support training of all UK cardiology trainees.
We are made up of trainee members throughout the UK, and communication with our 1235* members is coordinated by local deanery representatives and a central council. We have official representation on the councils of all the subspeciality professional bodies and we represent your views on the national Cardiology Speciality Advisory Committee (SAC) and other groups that organise our training.
Why should I join?
Navigating your way through speciality training can be a daunting task and we are uniquely placed to help you in this. Membership will allow you unique access to information on upcoming training events and conferences, the EEGC, committee news and allow us to canvass your opinion on a range of issues that affect your training. We hope that the National Cardiology Handbook (updated August 2016) will answer many of your questions and help to guide you painlessly through core training. We manage our exciting annual meetings programme through our BJCA Horizons platform (www.bjcahorizons.com) where you will have access to content and booking materials for "Cardiology to the Core" and "Headstart in Cardiology".
How do I join?
Membership is free, and is open to all cardiology specialty registrars holding an NTN or LAT, and cardiology research and clinical fellows. To join, please click here. We offer a "Starter" membership for Foundation Programme and Core Trainees interested in undertaking Higher Specialty Training in Cardiovascular Medicine. (Please note that if you are still a medical student, you will not be eligible to join BJCA til you graduate. In the meantime, BJCA suggest that you enquire about membership with the British Undergraduate Cardiovascular Association).
If BJCA members would also like to join BCS, they can apply for Joint BJCA/BCS membership. The rate for this joint membership is £105 per annum. For this you will receive all the benefits of BCS Membership, plus of course all those relating to BJCA Membership.
