Statement of Goals:
The objective of this course is to give the student in-depth exposure in certain sections of laboratory hematology. The clerkship involves work in bone marrow and coagulation sections with particular emphasis on interpretative reporting of bone marrows (average 8/week) and routine coagulation tests.
Learning Activities
The student should be able to investigate the reason for ordering tests, write a clear and concise report on bone marrows, as well as understand the significance of an abnormal coagulation profile. The student actively participates in the regular weekly hematopathology conferences and presents interesting cases with indepth review of recent literature.
Evaluation Methods
Students work closely with faculty and residents. The required evaluation forms are completed based on consensus of those who worked closely with the student.
