The objective of this elective is to give students experience in the diagnosis and treatment of hematologic disorders. Students will be encouraged to assume an active role as participants in the evaluation of patients with anemia, coagulation disorders, leukemia and lymphoma. The technique of bone-marrow aspiration and biopsy will be taught, with ample opportunity to perform the procedure. The proper interpretation of the peripheral smear and bone-marrow aspirate will be emphasized via individual instruction. An understanding of current applications of cytogenetics, cytochemical staining, cell-surface markers and electron microscopy in the evaluation of hematologic malignancies will be achieved by direct experience in their utilization. Active participation in divisional conferences, Journal Club, Morphology Conference and daily teaching rounds will be encouraged. All instruction will be provided by our fellows and by our full-time hematologists/oncologists.
