An important part of ASH’s mission is to support education and training in hematology. To this end, ASH provides valuable learning opportunities for hematology fellows, residents, medical students, and trainees at each annual meeting. Plan to attend one or all of these events.
Career-Development Lunch Sessions
Saturday, December 4, 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Trainee career-development lunch sessions will provide an intimate venue for trainees to meet with leaders in hematology to discuss professional development issues. Representatives will also be present to discuss careers in industry settings and in private and clinical practice. This event is open only to ASH Associate members and non-members in training wearing blue trainee meeting badges.
A boxed lunch will be provided. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. As seating is limited, attendees are strongly encouraged to arrive early. No additional people will be allowed in the rooms once these sessions are filled.
