ESH-EBMT Training Course on BLOOD AND MARROW TRANSPLANTATION

ESH-EBMT Training Course on BLOOD AND MARROW TRANSPLANTATION
May 09 - May 11, 2011 - La Baule, France
Chairs :

Information

The annual ESH-EBMT training course on HSCT was held in La Baule, France this year, hosted by Mohamed Mohty. The chairs and faculty provided a comprehensive overview of all aspects of autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation through a variety of tried and true lecture formats including case presentations by attendees and faculty, meet-the-expert breakfasts and dinner table discussions.

Participants particularly appreciated the faculty’s excellent teaching skills and willingness to discuss the field of transplant in both formal and informal settings. Physicians at all stages of their careers attended the meeting, including a large number of trainees.

This course provides a comprehensive training in all aspects of autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplantation and comprises a mixture of formal lectures, case presentations by attendees and faculty, meet-the-expert breakfasts and dinner table discussions. For each topic we give an explanation of the basic principles and then develop the subject through to the most recent advances in understanding and management. The faculty are chosen not only for their expertise in their subject but also for their teaching skills and willingness to discuss the field of transplant in both formal and informal settings. The course is suitable for physicians at all stages of their career and is particularly useful for those in training, for those who wish to develop their current practice to a more challenging type of transplant and also as an update for established transplanters.


Next year, the ESH-EBMT training course will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria. We hope you will join us.
