Description
This clerkship offers an individualized tutorial experience in the diagnosis, care, and clinical investigation of children with hematologic diseases. It is designed as an ambulatory rotation with an emphasis on pediatric hematology. Clinical activities include participation in the hematology clinic, and inpatient hematology consultations. Teaching activities include small group discussions of clinical problems, instruction on reading peripheral blood smears and bone marrow aspirates, as well as participation in the regularly scheduled hematology and oncology conferences. Students are expected to prepare a 45 minute presentation on a topic of their choosing at one of these conferences. The workload permits time for independent reading and the learning of special hematologic techniques.
