Now in its third year, this innovative trainee-led initiative with a £1000 prize is definitely a highlight of the programme.

The aim of this session is to encourage reflection on what we do as haematologists, and why we do it. 

The Crucible is open to doctors in training, and other healthcare professionals at any stage of their career, such as nurses and physician associates.

The five best abstracts will be selected for oral presentation, and the presenters will be questioned and judged by a panel of diverse haematology professionals. Presentations will be judged on the quality and originality of their content, presentation skills and response to questions.

The title for the 2020 Crucible Prize is 'What lessons can haematology learn from others?'

The deadline for submissions has now passed.
