In February, the ISTH Education Committee awarded three ISTH members with Reach-the-World Fellowships. Ecaterina Scarlatescu of Romania, Sithakom Phusanti of Thailand and Amit Sharma of India were selected for the program, which seeks to promote knowledge and expertise in medical care, laboratory methods and research for individuals from developing countries. As part of the program, the Society provides fellows with financial support for travel, accommodation and living expenses for a period of up to four months while they receive advanced training from renowned host institutions.

Ecaterina Scarlatescu, M.D.
“As an anesthesiologist working in a visceral surgery and liver transplantation center, I am frequently confronted with bleeding and/or thrombosis complications, so I can say that hemostasis was always an important topic in my continuous training,” Scarlatescu said. “I look forward to learning from international well-known experts, but probably the most exciting aspect will be the opportunity to actually see how they manage the cases in ICU and also to obtain hands-on experience working in a hemostasis research laboratory under the supervision and guidance of renowned specialists in the area of thrombosis and hemostasis.”
