ISTH Announces New Member Types for Early Career Professionals
Student membership will be free in 2020.
The ISTH is pleased to announce that it has restructured early career membership, beginning in 2020, to provide maximum benefit to junior members of the ISTH during their transition to long-term employment.
For the first time, the ISTH will be offering free membership to students and trainees. Additionally, for medical residents and post-docs, membership fees will be discounted to $35 USD. Both categories of membership are unlimited as long as the criteria are met.
Finally, the ISTH has altered the definition of Associate Membership to be a transitional membership for members that have completed their training. Associate Membership will now be $80 USD and limited to three years. All three categories of membership now fall under the term “Early Career” as defined by the ISTH Council.
