The elective is designed to provide an introduction to the pathophysiology and management of disorders in benign hematology. The service performs inpatient and outpatient consults for thrombosis, bleeding, platelet abnormalities, and other hematologic disorders. Under the supervision of attending physicians and hematology fellows, the student will function as part of a consultative team participating in hematological diagnosis and therapy. They will be expected to gain proficiency in case presentations, diagnostic and management strategies, and the interpretation of peripheral blood smears. They will also participate in a range of educational activities, such as hematology-oncology grand rounds and small group discussions of the cases of the week.
