Education Days: 4 and 25 October
Haematology is often seen as difficult, yet problems occur daily on the wards and in general practice and a good level of knowledge is vital. BSH is holding two study days this autumn. The first is Basic Haematology on 4 October (London), aimed mainly at first year clinical students and the second, Essential Haematology on 25 October (Leeds) is aimed at senior students and foundation doctors. Both days are very modestly priced! To find out more and book a place, please visit this link: http://www.b-s-h.org.uk/193_Students.html

The Subcommittee, formed in 2010, has focused most of its work on undergraduates by running master classes, an essay prize and developing online teaching resources. This is an exciting opportunity for medical students to contribute to the future educational work of the BSH. The posts will involve three meetings a year, held in London, and expenses for attendance will be paid. Each candidate should have 2-3 years remaining as a medical student and be studying in the UK.
