Training Directors Steering Committee

The Training Directors Steering Committee provides leadership to ASPHO in all aspects of graduate and postgraduate medical education in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. While the committee primarily focuses on fellowship education, it could include resident and medical student education. Such leadership activities could include but not be limited to development of educational curricula and systems of evaluation. The committee will give guidance to PDs and help develop workshops and educational materials for faculty development. The committee will supervise national recruitment activities for our subspecialty and will represent Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Program Directors on national organizations including but not limited to the Council of Pediatric Subspecialties.
