of our Society goes back to October 1964, when a special Section
for Haematology and Transfusion Medicine was founded within the
Slovenian Medical Association. The Section remained active until
1969, when transfusion specialists separated to form an independent
organization. The Section for Haematology was founded in April
of the following year. In March 1999 it was transformed into the
Slovenian Haematological Society.
At present our membership includes more than 60 internists, paediatricians,
biologists and other experts with special interest in haematology.
Our Society is a member of the Slovenian Medical Association and
the European Hematology Association. In cooperation with the Slovenian
Society for Transfusion Medicine, we organize two meetings per
year, at which topics of current interest are discussed. The Society
holds a congress at intervals of four years.
