Regional Training Center - THailand


The Regional Training Center (RTC) program is funded by the International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), which enables long-term partnerships between emerging centers in economically developing countries and mentoring centers in the high-income countries.


Through this program, the Ramathibodi Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand is an emerging center collaborating with the Division of Hematology & Oncology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The six-years program will include training professionals involved in the Thrombosis and Hemostasis field, enabling the exchange of students and teachers among the institutions involved, develop educational courses, internships and partnerships in research projects.


The program has three levels of two years of collaboration, progress and advancement. To advance to the next level, the center in training must send an annual report to ISTH, detailing activities and programs in progress. After successfully completing the 6-years’ program, the developing center will be classified by the ISTH as a "Regional Training Center", being able to act as a mentor for other emerging centers and region.



The objectives of participating in the RTC program are to provide training opportunities to the individual trainee, and to improve the patients’ management and clinical research which will benefit health care in the community and region through collaboration with UNC Chapel Hill to expand clinical, and research capacities in thrombosis and hemostasis at our center.
