Team-based learning course

The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) has launched a new team-based learning course focused on bringing together early-career physicians from around the world to collaborate on complex cases in bleeding and clotting.  

The course features three case modules on these topics:

1.Bleeding in patients on antithrombotics

2. Anticoagulation in patients with impaired kidney function

3. Thromboprophylaxis in patients with thrombophilia

The course will accommodate three learning teams, each consisting of 10-15 students (45 maximum students total) and three facilitators (nine total facilitators), who will mentor the students. The virtual course lasts 12 weeks, April 5-June 26, with a final in-person meeting in Bangkok, Thailand, at the ISTH 2024 Congress (virtual attendance also available). Learning teams will meet virtually at least once weekly, with a gap week between each module.

Course learning objectives 

By the end of the course, the participants will be able to:

  • Manage bleeding complications in patients on antithrombotic medications, by making evidence-based decisions taking into considerations the risk for continuing bleeding and thrombotic events
  • Manage anticoagulants in patients with severely impaired kidney function and balance the benefits of anticoagulation with the bleeding risk associated with kidney failure
  • Make decisions on thromboprophylaxis in patients with various types of thrombophilia depending on the individual thrombotic risk as comprised of thrombophilia and other risk factors. 


Facilitators will act as mentors to the learning teams, providing guidance and steering learning to ensure productive and rewarding experiences for everyone. Facilitators will meet with students virtually to help work through cases, and attend the final meeting at ISTH 2024 in Bangkok.

Facilitators should be specialist physicians with five to seven years of experience managing bleeding and/or thrombotic disorders.  Facilitators will receive a certificate at the completion of the course.
