Materials of hematology tutorial “Diagnostic work-up of hematological malignancies. Focus on lymphoid malignancies”, May 18-19, 2012, Kyiv, Ukraine
For about 20 years, the European School of Hematology (ESH) and the European Hematology Association (EHA) have cooperated in organizing educational activities in the field of continuous medical education designed in collaboration with the international experts. ESH has worked much to improve and harmonize the quality of education in hematology throughout Europe with the active implication of the world’s most prominent hematologists and hematology organizations. In 2008, the Joint ESH-EHA Executive Committee was organized. The Committee members E. Gluckman and B. Lоwenberg from ESH, W. Fibbe and R. Foa from EHA have developed a framework for continuing collaboration in the field including the workshops and training courses for hematologists. Among the scientific and educational courses on the latest developments in hematology, the hematology tutorials are of great interest for all those who are eager to improve and update their knowledge in various fields of modern hematology.
The scientific program of the tutorials comprising plenary lectures, interactively conducted clinical case study sessions and self-assessment sessions is designed to encourage interaction between the faculty and the course participants. For many years, within the framework of ESH-EHA program for continuous medical education, conferences, training courses and laboratory workshops have been organized in various countries throughout the world. The hematology tutorials involving a faculty of international experts are targeted to clinicians, biologists and students working in the field of hematological malignancies.
