2Non-members in training must provide an original letter on their institution’s letterhead, signed by a training program director, which states that they are currently enrolled in a training program.

3The allied health professional category is for individuals without a doctoral degree who provide direct patient care. Individuals with an MD, PhD, or PharmD degree do not qualify for this category because they are eligible for ASH membership. These individuals should register in the member or non-member category based upon their current membership status. All ASH members receive discounted rates at the Highlights of ASH. The following individuals are eligible to register as allied health professionals: nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physician assistants, clinical nurse specialists, and pharmacists without a PharmD. Others may also be eligible if they provide direct patient care if you devote 50% or more of your professional activity and time to the direct care and treatment of patients and function as an integral member of a team caring for patients. To verify status as an allied health professional, the registrant must provide a letter, on institutional letterhead, from his/her immediate supervisor confirming the name of the organization, the registrants position, the percentage of activity and time devoted to the direct care and treatment of patients, and a copy of a state license with expiration date thru the end of the meeting. Verification confirming the registrant’s professional status is required and should be uploaded (in PDF format) prior to arrival on site. In order to be officially registered for the meeting, ASH must confirm the registrant’s status. Individuals who do not provide verification will be charged the non-member registration rate.
