Haemophilia Academy

The Haemophilia Academy is an independently run training programme led by a distinguished faculty of haemophilia experts. The Haemophilia Academy is an annual, haemophilia-focused training course providing specific education and support for young haemophilia treaters at an early stage in their careers.

Objectives of the Haemophilia Academy
The Haemophilia Academy aims to:

  • Provide support to trainee haemophilia treaters
  • Address the perceived and real educational needs of the haemophilia treaters
  • Improve the management of haemophilia and allied bleeding disorders

Haemophilia Academy Faculty

  • Christopher Ludlam (Chair), Edinburgh, UK
  • Victor Blanchette, Toronto, Canada
  • Keith Hoots, Washington, USA
  • Claude Négrier, Lyon, France.
  • Johannes Oldenburg, Bonn, Germany

The Faculty members are responsible for planning the programme, selecting the participants, developing educational materials and delivering the programme.

The Haemophilia Academy is supported by an educational grant from Novo Nordisk Health Care AG.

Training programme
The Haemophilia Academy will consist of a 4-day training course, with 3 days of medical training and education, and a 1-day clinic visit. The aim of this interactive programme is to equip participants with the knowledge and skills that they need to develop their career in haemophilia and to discuss how to apply this information in a way that helps optimise patient care.

The course which will be run each year in November will be delivered in English, and participants should have a good knowledge of written and spoken English.

Participants and selection criteria
Participants should be qualified physicians towards the end of their specialty training and should exhibit evidence of a career interest in haemophilia. The Haemophilia Academy will provide them with knowledge and skills they can pass on to their colleagues, including junior trainees.

Participants should:

  • Ideally have 3–4 years’ experience in haematology
  • Have a significant focus on and career interest in haemophilia
  • Be individuals for whom haemophilia patients comprise or are likely to comprise a significant proportion of practice
  • Be nominated by their institution
  • Be available to attend a 4-day course in November
  • Be competent in written and spoken English.

Accreditation and endorsement
The Haemophilia Academy course is accredited (24 CME credits) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).

The European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders (EAHAD), the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) and the Haemophilia and Thrombosis Research Society (HTRS) have endorsed this training programme.
