VTP Mentor Volunteer

By volunteering as a mentor in the ASH Visitor Training Program (VTP), you will host program participants for up to 12 weeks at your institution. In order to serve as a mentor, you must be an ASH member in good standing (anywhere in the world) who can assume the responsibilities of overseeing the participant's work and progress. Mentors are needed for physicians as well as laboratory scientists. Volunteering to host does not guarantee that a trainee will be assigned to you. Applicants will be paired with the most suitable host mentor available each year.

*Please note that completion of this form is not a commitment to serve. If paired with a candidate, you will have the option to participate or refuse to participate once you have reviewed the candidate's training proposal.
