EHA Partner Fellowship
As part of the Career Development Program, the EHA Partner Fellowship Program is dedicated to junior hematologists from new accession and European Union candidate countries and developing countries.
The EHA Partner Fellowship facilitates the development of a collaborative network between hematology institutes in Western Europe and new accession and candidate countries of the EU and developing countries.
EHA’s Partner Fellowship Program supports the career development of young scientists who are involved in basic and clinical research in hematology by facilitating opportunities to work at host institutes in Western Europe.
