This virtual event is specifically designed for new UK ST3s and UK haematology trainees in similar posts and it will focus on a variety of topics, including morphology, haemostasis and thrombosis, transfusion and practical tips.

Pre-recorded presentations available on the BSH website from Monday 21 June 2021

Live Zoom webinar: Monday 12 July 2021, 18:30-20:00


BSH has been running this popular event since 2015 and we delivered it for the first time virtually in 2020. While we are looking forward to welcoming you to our face-to-face events again noon, we have decided to hold the ‘Induction for ST3 Trainees’ virtually again this year, so that as many of you as possible can join us safely.

Our format this year will be a combination of pre-recorded lectures, kindly put together by our presenters, and a live webinar. The pre-recorded lectures will be available to access on the BSH website from Monday 21 June 2021 and will remain on the website until the end of September. The lectures will include breaks so that the speakers can pose some questions and give you time to answer, keeping it as interactive as it can be. On 12 July Dr Andrew McGregor, consultant haematologist and Dr Alex Langridge, haematology registrar will host a live webinar, talking about what it is like to be a new ST3. This will also be a chance to ask questions that have come up following the pre-recorded lectures.
