The Society for Hematopathology and the European Association for Haematopathology were created in the late -1970's and mid 80's to facilitate discussion and dissemination of information about the dynamic field of h(a)ematopathology. Initially focusing primarily on North American and Western European based hematopathologists respectively, both Society memberships have expanded to include members on all continents, and many hematopathologists belong to both Societies. These shared memberships and interests have led to increased integration of the two societies, including memberships on the Executive Committees of both societies, shared planning of scientific meetings, preferential acceptance of members of one society into another, and a shared website.
Membership in the SH is available to qualified physicians and scientists throughout the world actively engaged in clinical and/or laboratory hematopathology. Associate membership is also available to residents and fellows. Membership benefits include notification of educational opportunities (workshops, Case of the Quarter, etc.), special events, job opportunities, topics on the discussion board, reduced registration fees at Society workshops, and hematopathology fellowship director updates/support.
Candidates for full or associate membership must submit an application (PDF version) to the chair of the Membership Committee. The Membership committee will review the applications on a regular basis and transmit its recommendations to the SH membership for a vote by routine e-mail within 14 days. Approval of new members is by simple majority of the voting members. The President will send a welcoming letter to each new member. Applicants should expect this process to take anywhere from 3 months to four months depending upon the date the application is received.
SH membership dues are currently $100. Sustaining members are those individuals who elect to provide additional financial support to the Society $150. Associate memberships for trainees are $25.
