Continuous Professional Development
The American Society of Hematology (ASH) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. ASH support hematologists' commitment to lifelong learning through a variety of activities that offer CME credit and maintenance of certification (MOC) points.
ASH Academy is an eLearning platform that provides opportunities to obtain continuing medical education and maintenance of certification credits.
The ASH Image Bank is an extensive Web-based educational library of hematologic imagery.
ASH Teaching Cases
ASH Teaching Cases emphasize standard approaches to classic hematologic problems and are designed to simulate the steps involved in diagnosing a patient, from taking the history and performing a physical exam, to ordering and interpreting lab tests, to making a final diagnosis and following the clinical course of the disease.
Benign Hematology Curriculum
The Benign Hematology Curriculum (BHC) is a series of free, web-based videos designed to supplement education in benign hematology for fellows. Each course focuses on a different benign hematology topic, with the goal of providing fellows with an educational resource that might not be available locally.
CML Interactive Cases
According to the American Cancer Society, chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) accounts for 15 to 20 percent of leukemias in adults. Management options for patients with CML include disease control using tyrosine kinase inhibitors, potential cure with allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), and palliative therapy with cytotoxic agents. Among the factors that may inform treatment choice are phase of CML, patient age, presence of comorbidities, donor availability for HCT, and response to treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors.
This educational activity provides an opportunity to explore two different CML cases. Learners will navigate treatment decisions based on patient presentation, history, and other findings that may impact the therapeutic approach.
Obtain continuing medical education and maintenance of certification credits through knowledge testing and meeting evaluations.

ASH regularly hosts educational webinars that feature presentations by experts in the field, cover current information on how to best diagnose and care for patients, and provide time for speakers and participants to discuss relevant issues during a question-and-answer session.
ASH webinars are offered live and recordings are archived for on-demand viewing.
In this interactive workshop, Grace Huang, Editor-in-Chief of MedEdPORTAL and editorial board member for Academic Medicine, will discuss how every teaching activity is an opportunity to 'make it count twice' by transforming it into a scholarly product. She will focus on educational interventions that have generalizable value to others and have been evaluated to some extent and will provide tips on how to position your work in a way that highlights your ideas.
The American Society of Hematology (ASH) offers multiple funding and training opportunities for hematology fellows, junior faculty, and senior research faculty at various career stages. Apply for one of the following career-enhancement awards or training programs to get the research funding, training, or guidance needed to move your hematology career forward.
