ASH Honorific Awards
ASH's most prestigious awards, the Honorific Awards recognize hematologists who have made significant contributions to the field of hematology. 

Hematology Inclusion Pathway

The ASH Hematology Inclusion Pathway (HIP), the successor program to the ASH Minority Recruitment Initiative (MRI), offers a comprehensive 13-year longitudinal career pathway of awards that strives to ensure that hematology reflects and serves the diverse world we live in – from medical students to mid-career professionals.

We are continuing to offer the awards and programs that have uplifted hematology professionals for the past 20 years — but the new HIP Initiative better aligns with ASH’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and reflects an evolving understanding of the communities that are underrepresented in hematology. With HIP, we’re continuing to foster and empower a diverse new generation of leaders in hematology.
