Join the BISOM

The British & Irish Society for Oral Medicine welcomes members from across the professions. If you share our goals – to work collaboratively to improve the quality of care for patients – in the field of oral medicine please join us.

Who can join the BISOM

The Society’s membership largely consists of clinicians involved in patient care. If you are a practitioner who deals daily with oral medicine cases then membership will provide you with access to many like-minded colleagues. If you work in education or are a medical or dental practitioner with an interest in oral medicine it’s the ideal environment to help develop your knowledge and skills.

Applications are also welcome from individuals who have a relevant research or education background and wish to be part of the BISOM. Membership is not open to members of the public.
