Last Chance to Contribute to the ISTH Core Curriculum
Now is your opportunity and last chance to
contribute to the ISTH Core Curriculum. In the fall, the ISTH membership was
asked to provide initial comments via an online survey on a draft version of
the Core Curriculum. That feedback informed the committee leading the project
and has been incorporated into a follow-up survey to capture final comments
from the members of the ISTH.
At this time, ISTH members and specialists in
the thrombosis and haemostasis are encouraged to provide any final comments on
the updated curriculum.
Last year the ISTH began developing a Core
Curriculum for clinical thrombosis and haemostasis specialists. The aim of the
ISTH Curriculum is to provide a framework to facilitate harmonization of
training that ensures the attainment of a pre-determined level of knowledge in thrombosis
We acknowledge that while there will be
regional variations in facilities, access to laboratory testing and clinical
management options, but the curriculum can be used internationally to inform a
set of minimum knowledge required for a medical doctor to be considered as a
clinical specialist in the field of thrombosis and haemostasis.
The program can also be used as a framework
for continuous professional development and maintenance of competence.
