Interested clinicians and scientists are welcome to apply to chair and develop the scientific
program of an ESH-EHA Type III Hematology Tutorial.

ESH-EHA Type I, II and III Hematology Tutorials are interactive courses designed for a
maximum of 100 participants aiming to provide laboratory and clinical hematologists with an
integrated diagnostic and clinical work-up of hematological disorders. The scientific program
takes the participants through the diagnostic and clinical pathway of malignant diseases.

Tutorials consist of three types of sessions:

   1. Plenary lectures
   2. Interactively conducted clinical case study sessions presented as PowerPoint Slides.
   3. Interactively conducted self-assessment test-cases based on clinical cases using
      PowerPoint Slides and Voting Box System allowing participants to individually register
      their responses to multiple choice questions and to see how their responses compare
      with those of the other participants.

ESH-EHA Type III Hematology Tutorials are developed as part of the joint ESH-EHA
outreach program.

They use new lectures and the clinical cases and self-assessment test cases previously
presented at ESH-EHA Type I Hematology Tutorial uploaded to the EHATol online platform
available via and The Chair of EHATol Unit is responsible for
selecting the cases and self-assessment case studies from the EHATol database according to
the topics selected by the Chair(s).

ESH and EHA provide the teaching materials and equipment for ESH-EHA Type III
Hematology Tutorials (in English) including the Voting Boxes System and full support in all
organizational aspects and assistance on-site.

N.B. EHA-ESH does not provide any financial support for organizing ESH-EHA Type III
Hematology Tutorial. Financing of the ESH-EHA Type III Hematology Tutorial will be the
