Early Career Task Force Meets in Barcelona to Set Goals, Mission

In February 2017, the Early Career Task Force (ECTF) held a strategic planning meeting in Barcelona, Spain, to set its mission and goals for the next two years.

In 2013, the ISTH established a group of early career members to represent the voice and needs of early career professionals within the ISTH. This group consists of 12 members and is responsible for creating a platform for ISTH early career professionals via social media and the early career forum series in the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (JTH). Behind the scenes, the ECTF has advised the ISTH council and committees in the structure and availability of ISTH fellowships and events, particularly those targeted at early career professionals.

At the Barcelona meeting the group established the following projects:

1) assessing the needs of ISTH early career population via a survey
2) establishing a community of early career professionals
3) creating an accessible (online) platform for interaction and discussion
4) assisting in connecting early career professionals and established investigators for fellowships and collaborations.

In addition, the ECTF will continue to work closely with existing ISTH committees (e.g. education committee, publications committee, marketing & membership, meetings) to best engage early career professionals in all ISTH activities and opportunities. In general, the mission is to engage and represent early career professionals in the ISTH, and to foster this community in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis.

Get Involved!
We encourage all interested early career members to get involved and to help represent other early career professionals in various ISTH committees and activities. Your involvement will enable us to foster an active, engaging, and fun community of early career clinicians and scientists! Please approach us via, the ECTF Facebook group, or come by the ISTH booth at the ISTH 2017 Congress in Berlin to learn more. We also plan to coordinate a meet-up at ISTH 2017 for early career professionals. Please do not hesitate to ask us any questions!
