Structure

The New Structure of INTEGRATE

INTEGRATE is the National ENT Trainee Research collaborative. It was formed and is run by ENT trainees throughout the UK.  INTEGRATE has now been re-organised. Three subcommittees will specialise in the areas of Head & Neck, Rhinology and Otology. Each subcommittee will be formed of subcommittee members and a subcommittee chair (who will also sit on the core INTEGRATE committee). It is intended that each subcommittee will work independently to prepare projects in each of their fields, with projects then delivered by the INTEGRATE network.
