Each year, the ASH annual meeting provides hematology trainees with a variety of high-quality educational, career-development, and networking opportunities. To help trainees make the most of their meeting experience, a number of activities and services have been created to suit the unique interests of undergraduates, medical and graduate students, residents, and fellows (MD and PhD). This year’s activities will include four newly designed Trainee Didactic Sessions on time management, drug development, setting up a research program, and bridging the divide between basic science and clinical research.

These events are open only to Associate members; Medical Student, Graduate Student, and Resident members; and non-members in training wearing blue trainee meeting badges. Read on for more information about today’s trainee-focused events, and check ASH News Daily each day for events taking place Sunday and Monday.

These sessions provide an intimate venue for trainees to meet with leaders in hematology to discuss careers in the wide array of practice areas within hematology, including basic, clinical, and translational research, PhD careers, careers in industry settings, and careers in private and clinical practice.

There will be two rooms reserved for these sessions, with two tables per room for each career area and one faculty member at each table leading the discussion. A boxed lunch will be provided.
