Medical professionals from developing nations to pursue hematology training

(WASHINGTON) The American Society of Hematology (ASH) is proud to announce the participants in the 2009 ASH Visitor Training Program, which builds hematologic capacity in developing countries. Through this program, hematologists and medical professionals from developing countries receive valuable clinical, laboratory, or technological training on a specific topic at a host institution under the mentorship of an ASH member anywhere in the world. Upon completion, participants return to their home countries to implement their training and share their newfound knowledge with their colleagues.

"The Visitor Training Program affords promising physicians from developing countries the opportunity to learn about procedures and techniques that are often unavailable in their local medical facilities," said Dr. Nancy Berliner, ASH President. "Our intention is to foster skills and expertise that participants can bring back to their home institutions. This should have a direct, positive impact on the quality of health care in their communities."

Since 2003, the Visitor Training Program has supported more than 30 hematology-related professionals.
