The Haematology Association of Ireland nurtures the development of haematology knowledge and research on the Island of Ireland. HAI achieves this through the organisation of an annual meeting which takes place in October of each year and is hosted in all corners of the island.
The Association welcomes members who are qualified, working or studying in any area of haematology. We are proud of our medical, nursing and scientific members. Our multidisciplinary committee ensures that all areas of haematology research, knowledge and practice (both diagnostic and therapeutic) are represented at our annual meeting and at subspecialty meetings during the year.
HAI is closely affiliated with the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland from whom we derive our annual meeting accreditation and the authority to provide accreditation to smaller Irish meetings during the year.
We are also associated with the Royal College of Pathologists in the UK (RCPath). The RCPath is working on procedures designed to open its exams to scientists. The HAI is happy to support scientists in their preparations with opportunities to network, develop research projects and seek funding in the form of start up grants and travel grants.
The HAI is increasingly a nidus of opportunity for doctors in haematology, (training and trained) to further collaboration on research projects and clinical trials.
Our annual meeting attracts speakers of the highest international standing from all areas of haematology as a glance through previous programmes will demonstrate. Consistently positive feedback from attendees allows me to encourage you to attend out annual meeting to experience this for yourself.
