The need for clinicians and clinical/translational researchers in hematology-related disciplines is strong, and with a growing number of trainees expressing an interest in pursuing hybrid careers, ASH developed the Alternative Training Pathway Grant. Since 2008, ASH has awarded eight grants to training program directors so they may have the resources needed to develop curricula that meet these new demands.
The Alternative Training Pathway Grant is intended to foster the development and/or implementation of creative new curricula for trainees in clinical and clinical/translational hematology and related fields. The American Society of Hematology (ASH) invites Training Program Directors and other educators to submit proposals for novel training initiatives that will augment existing training programs.
Examples of previously funded initiatives include: Pathway in Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes, Canadian Adult Comprehensive Hemoglobinopathy (CAtCH) Fellowship, Pediatric and Adult Training in Hematology Pathway (PATHway), Transition of Care for Adolescent and Young Adult Survivors of Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases, Specialized Clinical and/or Basic Research Training in Benign Hematology, and Pediatric Hemostasis-Thrombosis Pharmacology Fellowship Training Pathway.
The deadline to submit a letter of intent for 2011 is February 2, 2011. For more information, please visit www.hematology.org/atpg.
