    ASH Self-Assessment Program

    The ASH Self-Assessment Program is designed to provide challenging, informative multiple-choice questions for hematologists studying for professional certification or recertification exams. Successful completion of this activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s MOC program. Participants earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity.

    Global programs include:

    Health Volunteers Overseas

    Together with Health Volunteers Overseas (HVO), a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving global health through education, ASH brings invaluable consultation and training to hospitals in low-and middle-income countries. The objective of the program is to develop sustainable improvement in the management of hematology patients at these institutions and to, ultimately, enhance patient care.

    Each program site has an ASH member program director and on-site coordinators who oversee volunteer visits at the institutions and provide feedback on the institutions' evolving needs and goals. ASH and HVO consultants also work with on-site hematologists, laboratory scientists, blood bankers, faculty, administrators, and others to formulate mid- and long-term goals for each site and to create profiles for volunteer hematologists who can help fulfill these needs.
