European Hematology Curriculum

Harmonization of hematology knowledge is part of EHA’s mission. The first step in harmonizing hematology training is to stipulate the required fields of knowledge, each with its recommended level of competence. For this purpose, EHA published in 2006 the first European Hematology Curriculum.  This document details the different areas which hematologists are expected to cover during their training and expresses the minimum recommended levels of competence that a hematology trainee should attain on a consensual description of the scope of the specialty of hematology. Revisions happened in 2012, 2018, and the latest update in 2023.

New topics have been added, incorporating the new knowledge, diagnostic tools and novel treatment modalities that have been developed in the last years.

The eight sections of The European Hematology Curriculum 2023 are:

  1. Clinical hematology: Non-malignant hematology
  2. Clinical hematology: Myeloid malignancies
  3. Clinical hematology: Lymphoid malignancies and plasma cell disorders
  4. Treatment of hematological disorders
  5. Laboratory diagnoses
  6. Thrombosis and hemostasis
  7. Transfusion medicine
  8. General skills
