Training Program Directors' Workshop

The Training Program Director’s Workshop is held each year before the ASH annual meeting and is designed for training program directors, associate program directors, and others involved with hematology training. The workshop is designed for hematology program directors to share lessons learned, best practice, and explore opportunities to improve their leadership skills. Through experiential learning techniques, breakout sessions, and interactive lectures, program directors can learn from peers and build their network.

The 2021 live workshop will be held at the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta, GA on December 10, 2021.
