The goal of this non-CME educational event is to attract trainees to the field to benefit current and future patients with hemostatic and thrombotic disorders.  The program is a dynamic mix of case presentations by attending trainees, interactive presentations by faculty, small group breakout sessions, and time for networking.  Attendees receive free HTRS membership for the duration of their training.

Applicants must complete and submit an online Application Form -- including a required Letter of Support from their Medical Residency Program Director, Fellowship Program Director, or other mentor.  The link will be available shortly via our online grant application system, Survey Monkey Apply. 

The Workshop begins with a Welcome Reception and opening sessions the first evening, followed by a full day of interactive case discussions, faculty presentations, and small group breakout sessions the next day. 

We look forward to the next successful workshop and to meeting our future leaders in benign hematology at this event!
