Advances in hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation (HCT) have led to an increasing number of transplantations and a concomitant requirement for physicians skilled in transplantation care. Guidelines for training HCT physicians were published in 2001; however, the past decade has seen a rapid expansion of the medical knowledge and skill set that these physicians need to deliver the highest quality of care. Recognizing the importance of education for transplantation programs, the American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation established a Committee on Education in 2010. The Committee's updated guidelines presented here provide an extensive and detailed framework for use by HCT educators and directors in developing HCT training programs and evaluating and mentoring their trainees.
