Meeting Challenges Through Education
Through the support of your donations, the Society has established responsive and creative programs to directly benefit both individuals and pediatric hematology oncology programs. Read about the 2016 award winners.
Clinician Educator Awards
This award provides funding to support scholarship in medical education, which may take the form of research endeavors, advanced training for the clinician educator him or herself, or development of new educational resources. Your donation will strengthen medical education scholarship in pediatric hematology/oncology and provide needed reinforcement for this emerging career path. Recipients of the award are required to produce a scholarly work product (curriculum, report, survey analysis, abstract, or the like) that will benefit all members and training institutions.
- The Society considers applications for funding to cover tuition for training programs, support unique applicant-designed projects, pay for travel expenses, or to fund other such opportunities as the applicant may identify as critical to his or her success as a clinician educator.
- The applicants identify the purpose of the request, how it will benefit the applicant's scholarly efforts, identify outcomes to be achieved and the benefit to pediatric hematology/oncology practitioners, and propose an associated scholarly work product.
- ASPHO's inaugural fundraising campaign is allowing up to two scholars to be funded annually at an amount of up to $10,000 each.
Applications will open soon. Review the criteria and apply for the 2017 Clinician Educator Award.
Although the ASPHO Annual Meeting provides essential learning opportunities, some pediatric hematologists/oncologists are unable to participate given funding constraints. Your donation will fund competitive travel awards for early career participants and those from developing countries, providing recipients the opportunity to gain new advanced knowledge, invaluable networking opportunities with peers, and a chance to identify and connect with prospective mentors.
- Early career travel awards of up to $500 (plus registration costs) helps to support the future researchers and leaders of the profession and introduce them to the many benefits of ASPHO.
- International travel awards of up to $2,000 (plus registration costs and 1-year membership) allows pediatric hematology and oncology specialists from developing countries (low-income or lower middle-income) to benefit from the ASPHO Annual Meeting education and networking opportunities, building knowledge and relationships to impact patient care in countries of greatest need.
ASPHO's inaugural campaign funds early career and international recipients' travel awards annually.
The application for international travel awards will open soon. Review the criteria and apply for the 2017 International Award.
