|ISTH Clinical Core Curriculum|
The ISTH Clinical Core Curriculum on thrombosis and hemostasis is the first framework of its kind to define the minimum standards for a medical doctor to attain a level of proficiency to enable them to practice independently as specialists in the field.
Published in the January 2016 issue of the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (JTH), the Core Curriculum is a key resource and reference for the global thrombosis and hemostasis community. Click here to view the article.
While there were a number of local or regional curricula prior to the ISTH Clinical Core Curriculum, there had been no international consensus on what constituted the requirements for a specialist in thrombosis and hemostasis in terms of clinical competencies.
In 2013, the ISTH identified the need for an international clinical Core Curriculum and developed a working group consisting of specialists from around the world to address and draft a list of competencies. ISTH members and the global thrombosis and hemostasis community were surveyed to rate the importance of the proposed competencies. The survey garnered more than 640 responses with broad geographical representation, which determined the ultimate framework for the new curriculum.
This new curriculum is currently being integrated into the ISTH Academy's online library of educational resources. Check back soon for progress.
