I’m Chris, @BOTA_uk Academic Rep - ST6 and currently studying for a PhD on ankle fractures @Ndorms. T&O currently lead the field with our pragmatic CCT research requirements…I’m hoping @BOTA_UK can help us all get more involved with multicentre clinical trials and less time writing up our bosses pants case-series on left big toe bunions!
When not #Collaborating – you’ll find me rowing on the ISIS or training with the @UniofOxford Mixed Martial Arts club: Stay tuned for varsity!
