International Hemophilia Training Centre Fellowship Program

Healtcare professionals
Since the program was launched in 1972, over 722 healthcare professionals from 97 countries have received training.

The aim of the International Hemophilia Training Centre (IHTC) Fellowship Program is to give healthcare professionals from developing countries training in the diagnosis and management of hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders.

Each year the World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) awards up to 37 fellowships to medical and paramedical staff. Fellows travel to one of 31 designated IHTCs for a four to six-week training in the clinical and paramedical aspects of hemophilia management.

The application period for the 2019 IHTC Fellowship Program is now closed. Successful applicants will be notified in March 2019
