Nevertheless, recent therapeutic developments, including advances in prophylaxis and inhibitor management, have renewed the demand for experts in hemophilia and related disorders. To meet this demand, several specialty training programs have been developed in the United States and Europe, specifically the International Course in Hemophilia in Malmo, Sweden, the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles International Pediatric Hemostasis and Thrombosis Program, and the Baxter/National Hemophilia Foundation Fellowship Programs. The purpose of these programs is to enhance the clinical expertise and further the professional development of individuals dedicated to treating patients with coagulation disorders. (Less)
