How to Get Involved with Guidance and Guidelines: A Q&A with Jim Douketis

The Early Career Task Force (ECTF) of the ISTH is committed to exposing early career members to diverse opportunities within ISTH which are avenues for both professional and career development and collaborations. One of these opportunities is creating or editing guidance and guideline documents, an effort led by the Guidance and Guidelines committee (G&G) of the ISTH.

In this two-part series, the ISTH first published an early career researcher’s experience writing an SSC recommendation. In this second article the ISTH spoke with Jim Douketis, M.D., G&G committee member and co-author with Jeff Weitz, M.D., of a call to action paper in JTH: ‘Guidance, guidelines, and communications. J Thromb Haemost 2014; 12: 1744–1745.’

New Regional Training Center Program Offers Opportunity to Build Lasting Partnerships

 

The ISTH has launched the new ISTH Regional Training Center (RTC) program, which focuses on building knowledge capacity in under-resourced regions of the world, which the ISTH designates as Reach-the-World (countries classified by the World Bank as low-income, lower-middle-income, or upper-middle-income). The RTC program supports long-term partnerships and collaborations as well as knowledge exchange between emerging and mentoring centers.

The program is centered around fellowships, which are combined with additional ISTH Reach-the-World (RtW) programs so that the Society’s outreach will support and strengthen the professional capacity more broadly in the fellows’ home centers. Applications are welcome from past RtW fellows and home institutions from developing countries.
