Early Career Professionals


Early Career Committee Members

Welcome early career professionals! As one of the fastest growing groups of the ISTH, early career professionals are important to the mission of the Society. As such, the Early Career Committee (ECC) was formed as a task force in 2013 to represent the voice and needs of early career professionals in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis. In 2017, the task force officially became a Council Committee.

The ECC consists of a group of active early career ISTH members from worldwide origins. Their overall mission is to engage and represent early career professionals in the ISTH and to foster this community in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis. Learn more and see member bios here.

The ECC encourages all early career members to get involved and to help represent other early career professionals in various ISTH committees and activities. Participate in discussion on the Early Career Facebook Group. Please email with any questions.
