Section of Hematology

The Section of Hematology provides a full range of treatment and consultation services for patients with nonmalignant blood disorders. The Section is responsible for the Hematology Training Program. Fellows participate in one general hematology clinic per week where the focus is on the longitudinal care of patients with hematologic disorders. Fellows are supervised by faculty members who review the care of each patient. During clinical training fellows also participate in rotations of outpatient hematology, inpatient hematology, and the hematology consult service. The in-patient fellows are responsible for preparing the agendas for the two weekly hematology conferences – one focused on hematologic malignancies, the other on non-malignant hematology. They present new and/or problematic cases, with a focus on the interdisciplinary care of these patients. In case management, fellows present and defend plans of care based on review of the relevant primary literature. The Section also offers research opportunities in studies of coagulation and hemoglobinopathies. Moreover, members of the Section also are involved with other major focus areas in lymphoid malignancies, bone marrow transplantation, multiple myeloma, and myelodysplastic syndrome.
