Consultative Hematology Course

Thursday, September 17, 2015, 2:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Intended for clinical hematologists based in community practice in North America, the ASH Consultative Hematology Course, held the day before the 2015 ASH Meeting on Hematologic Malignancies, will cover commonly encountered clinical problems that arise in everyday practice and require the expertise of a hematologist. The course will focus on non-malignant hematology and will use case-based presentations and interactive discussions.
