Program content and organization
- The aim of the course is to provide evidence-based theoretical teaching as well as practical information about the diagnosis and treatment of hematologic disorders.
- The course is mainly based on the clinical hematology curriculum
- The course is designed as a 2-year cycle including 7 seminars per year, covering each a major theme of hematology.
- Each seminar is divided into 4-6 topics (depending on the seminar) related to the main theme. Each topic has been carefully determined according to the EHA CV Passport.
- Seminars will take place on Saturday mornings at Hof Ter Musschen on the UCL St-Luc campus in Brussels from 9:00hrs to 13:00hrs, with a 30-min coffee break.
- Please note that next to face-to-face attendance, online self study will also be possible (your choice will be requested during registration).
- Attendance to the seminars is free for BHS members, including trainees.
- The course is mainly designed for trainees in hematology but clinical biologists are more than welcome.
- The registration for the seminars is required once-only.
- Trainees in hematology (particularly years 4, 5 or 6 of Internal Medicine) or in Clinical Biology are invited to register online on the BHS website the beginning of the 2-year cycle. It is allowed to start with either seminar 1 (year 1) or seminar 8 (year 2).
- Other BHS members are welcome to attend the course but for organisational reasons, registration is always required.
- A fee may be requested from non-members.
- In order to further improve the course if necessary, attendees will also be asked to return evaluation forms.
- PowerPoint presentations and recordings will be available online after each seminar.
- Trainees and BHS members are also encouraged to use the EHA Confolio, a social Network designed to interact with other hematologists and exchange scientific teaching material
Evaluation & certification of trainees
- An examination will take place every year, covering all seminars of the last 2 years.
- The examination will consist in an online multiple choice questionnaire based on questions provided by each speaker.
- It will mainly focus on the clinical hematology knowledge.
- An official certificate of qualification will award the successful trainees if they have to passed the examination with at least 60% (50% for biologists).
- At present, the heads of department of our universities are free to endorse the BHS examination as their official end of training examination. In the future, this examination may become an official requirement for obtaining the special competence in hematology.
