What is the Haemophilia Academy?

A 2007 survey of haematologists revealed that there are few opportunities for knowledge sharing, particularly among those at an early stage of their career in haemophilia.

To address this need, the annual Haemophilia Academy was established. The programme comprises a 4.5-day, CME-accredited educational event, and has been held each year in Edinburgh since 2008.

The Haemophilia Academy aims to:


Provide specific education support to trainee haemophilia treaters at an early stage in their careers

Address their perceived and real educational needs

Provide specific education support to trainee haemophilia treaters at an early stage in their careers

Faculty, support and endorsement

A distinguished Faculty of six leading haemophilia experts are responsible for planning the programme, the selection of participants, developing educational materials and delivering the sessions.

In addition, the compelling nature of the first four programmes resulted in endorsement from three key professional societies

  • European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders (EAHAD)
  • International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH)
  • Hemostasis and Thrombosis Research Society (HTRS)

Since 2012 the Haemophilia Academy has been endorsed by:

CME accreditation

The 2019 Haemophilia Academy has been granted 25 CME credits by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
