The IHTC Fellowship Program plays a vital role in our strategic priorities and is helping us work towards our vision of Treatment for All. It helps ensure that communities have the necessary trained healthcare professionals to provide treatment and care. Through international collaboration and exchange, the Program reinforces the capacities of fellows to confidently provide the best care and treatment possible, and to increase the percentage of people identified and diagnosed with bleeding disorders globally. Fellows also become important advocates for people living with bleeding disorders, supporting the efforts of the WFH national member organizations (NMOs) in their countries.
Fellowships are open to all hemophilia treatment centre (HTC) multidisciplinary team members, including clinicians, nurses, physical therapists, laboratory professionals, orthopedic surgeons, dentists, psychosocial professionals, and other specialists dedicated to serving the bleeding disorders community. The Program provides an in-person clinical, laboratory, and paramedical training at one of the 34 designated WFH International Hemophilia Training Centres (IHTC), in addition to virtual training modules when applicable.
