The ISBT Young Professionals Council (YPC) is a group of young leaders in the blood transfusion community with a mission of increase existing opportunities for this younger audience and stimulate active participation in the educational events offered by ISBT.
The Council meets annually in person at the ISBT international or Regional congress, and virtually on a regular basis throughout the year. Furthermore they will maintain communication with the ISBT Board, the Standing Committee of the ISBT Academy and the ISBT Central Office, to ensure that the needs of the young professionals’ community are met. It also aims to influence the strategic direction of ISBT in relation to young professionals and their career development.
ISBT promotes this by educational activities, networking events, leadership opportunities, and engaging young professionals to develop programs and opportunities to support young leaders in the field of transfusion medicine.
