Welcome to the British Thyroid Association


The British Thyroid Association is committed to promoting research and interest in the field of thyroidology and to the enhancement of clinical care to patients with thyroid disorders.


A non-profit making Learned Society, membership of the BTA is open to professionals in the UK who manage patients with thyroid disease and/or are researching into the thyroid and its disease in humans.


All medical professionals (including trainees and students); scientists, nurses, and other allied health professionals are welcome to join the BTA.  If you are working in this area we would encourage you to take out membership as this will provide fresh ideas, inspiration and new knowledge via your peers. It also offers several benefits including:


  • The opportunity to attend our annual meeting at reduced cost 
  • The chance to share your abstract at our annual meeting and its subsequent publication in Thyroid Research
  • Discounted registration fees for the BES conference
  • A twice yearly newsletter which keeps you in touch with thyroid related issues
  • Discounted membership of the BTF


Please see full details  of 2024's virtual educational meeting for trainees and face to face annual meeting for members  - including the programme - just here . You will additionally find recordings of selected lectures from our completed events which are available  for a limited time via the Vimeo links


The BTA is funding 2 travel grants (each £750) for trainee or nurse members to present at the annual meeting of the European Thyroid Association (7-10 Sept 2024, Athens).

To apply, please email to: [email protected] (deadline for application: 31st May 2024). Please attached your accepted abstracts with your application. If there are more than 2 applications, the BTA Ex-Com select the two best abstracts
