    HSANZ MENTORSHIP IN HAEMATOLOGY AWARD

    Mentorship is essential for success in a career in haematology, yet it is often a component of career development that, while prized by recipients, is rarely rewarded.  Many of  us have benefited from the support of an exceptional mentor, but often this role is unrecognised.

    The HSANZ Haematology Mentor of the Year Award recipient is someone who has demonstrated an outstanding and lasting impact in the education and training of trainees / nurses / scientists. The assessment of the nominee's contribution in relation to others is an essential part of the nomination.

    HSANZ LEADERSHIP IN HAEMATOLOGY AWARD

    This award is to honour an individual who demonstrates extraordinary commitment to leadership in haematology.  Our success as a profession is contingent on our members  sharing knowledge, demonstrating thought leadership, and increasing the value of haematology. The recipient will be recognised by the presentation of an honorific award at the Annual Blood Meeting.

    Nominees should have a recognised record of accomplishment in terms of contributing to significant leadership that has benefited the haematology profession. This leadership may be within their clinical or academic department, via advocacy to government and contribution to policy, or through international leadership in clinical or translational research.
