UPCOMING FELLOWS NETWORK EVENTS

Fellows Forum: Case Exchange

The HTRS Fellows Network is hosting a virtual Fellows Forum case series this February 7, March 21, and April 18, to engage members in informal, real-time dialogue around interesting and relevant clinical cases in classical hematology.

Each month, one presenter will highlight a learning case and encourage discussion around best practices, common pitfalls, and tricky gray areas. The forum will be hosted on Zoom and each session will last 30-45 minutes. If you are not yet an HTRS member but would like to participate, visit the Fellows Network Registration page and join us. This series is not intended to provide medical advice and is for education purposes only!

HTRS MENTOR MATCH PROGRAM

The HTRS Mentor Match Program connects early-career investigator members (trainees or early faculty; MD or PhD) with HTRS mentors to enhance career development.  Throughout the year, the program offers all members opportunities to collaborate, engage, guide, learn and grow.

 


GRANT REVIEW WORKSHOPS

Who Should Apply?

Members of the HTRS Fellows Network (trainees) and ConECCTOR (junior faculty) are invited to apply for a two-part, individualized GRW with an experienced HTRS physician-scientist and/or PhD investigator. The goal of the GRW is to provide applicants with helpful feedback to aid them in preparing a competitive research grant for submission.

How Does a GRW Work?

GRWs consist of two (2) 1-hour sessions. The first session is scheduled by HTRS and held in person during a national hematology meeting. The second session is held virtually and is scheduled by the mentor/mentee at their mutual convenience, up to two months after the in-person session. 

In between sessions, mentees are expected to consider and/or apply feedback from their first session and review helpful grant writing resources posted to the HTRS online Resource Center.
