ASH Consultative Hematology Course

The ASH Consultative Hematology Course (CHC) is an interactive, half-day program led by faculty familiar with consultative practice issues and commonly encountered clinical problems that require the expertise of a hematologist. Program participants engage in case-based presentations and discussions focusing on non-malignant hematology topics, such as thrombosis, thrombocytopenia, and bleeding.

Update your core knowledge of non-malignant hematology by attending one of two courses in 2019.
