Benign Hematology Curriculum

The Benign Hematology Curriculum (BHC) is a series of free, web-based videos designed to supplement education in benign hematology for fellows. Each course focuses on a different benign hematology topic, with the goal of providing fellows with an educational resource that might not be available locally.

The Benign Hematology Curriculum is a work in progress and will be continuously updated as modules are completed. Please complete a brief survey once you have viewed the module(s). Your feedback is extremely valuable as we develop and improve the modules over time.
