The Hemostasis and Thrombosis Research Society (HTRS) recently announced the availability of two new clinical fellowship awards (CFAs) in 2017. The awards will support mentored clinical fellowships focused on hemophilia and other rare bleeding disorders for one academic year (July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2018). During the fellowship year, awardees must be mentored by experienced MDs or DOs working in hemophilia and rare bleeding disorders at established US-based hemostasis treatment centers. Applications for the HTRS/Novo Nordisk Clinical Fellowship Awards in Hemophilia and Rare Bleeding Disorders are due on Monday, January 16, 2017. The program is supported by an educational grant from Novo Nordisk, Inc. For more information, visit the HTRS website.
