Introduce a colleague to membership in ISTH! •
ISTH and its activities around the world greatly depend on the active involvement of our members and the network of members around the world.
We invite your help and support as members of the Society to further expand ISTH’s initiatives, international community, reach and impact.
ISTH membership is of great value for researchers, clinicians, and medical professionals at all stages of their career. We encourage you to share the ISTH membership benefits with your colleagues and particularly highlight the 3 categories of membership:
Regular: for fulltime professionals with a continuing scientific interest in thrombosis, hemostasis and vascular biology,
Associate: students, trainees, postdocs, and nurses,
• Reach the World: researchers, educators and clinicians from
the developing world.
ISTH membership offers very concrete benefits such as a personal subscription to JTH as well as opportunities for global networking and professional development. For more detailed information on each membership level, please visit the ISTH website (isth.org
