Continuing Medical Education is the best way for hematologists to master the latest developments within the specialty of Hematology. Staying abreast of these scientific developments and keeping in touch with the up-to-date views on clinical policy will enable you to raise your professional level, ultimately resulting in the best treatment for your patients.
Countries strive for improvement in their national courses, as well as harmonization of training in Hematology at a European level, adapting uniform standards and quality levels to suit their needs. The ultimate objective of harmonization is to raise the general standards within the specialty of Hematology. This applies to individuals as well as organizations, in Europe and beyond.
The international adaptation of a uniform scheme of rules and requirements, to which increasing numbers of academic and independent training institutions must comply, is an important development in Europe. Training offered by independent organizations is carefully scrunized on a national level and by EHA for accreditation, which will be recognized internationally.
More and more training institutes are applying for accreditation, thus offering increased benefits to participants:
- a wider selection of tutorials and events of approved quality will become available, enabling you to select the training that best matches your individual needs;
- your academic qualifications will be recognized across European borders because your credits have been accumulated from participation in training run by internationally recognized, high-quality educational organizations. National Societies and EHA are attempting to align their CME systems and the value of their credits.
In the coming years this should result in a uniform European system to run alongside those of each country, allowing you to become an active, widely accepted member of the European community of Hematologists, as well as supporting your international mobility.
