MED - 836 Hematology


This course provides an intensive exposure to clinical hematology. Students meet with residents, fellows and a teaching-attending hematologist daily for presentation and discussion of hospitalized hematology patients. Students work-up patients, present them to the attending and participate in patient care with medical residents. Blood and bone marrow slides on the service patients are reviewed daily with attending hematologists using a teaching (multi-headed) microscope. Bedside rounds follow the daily presentation of cases. On Mondays, a multidisciplinary lymphoma conference presents diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of the malignant lymphomas. On Thursdays, a clinical conference is held in which a patient is presented and discussed in depth by students, residents and faculty. A recent addition to this elective is a daily self-learning session with a faculty member on a core topic of hematology. Twenty of these topics cover the spectrum of hematologic diseases. All conferences held by the Section of Hematology and Stem Cell Transplantation is available to the students on an optional basis. Elective Retake Counts for Credit: Yes. Pass/No Pass Grading Allowed: Yes. Credit(s): 4
