Module Goal

The goal of the Hematology-Oncology module is to enable students to classify and to have a basic understanding of both red and white blood cell disorders and to incorporate laboratory findings into clinical problem solving. The module consists of seventeen didactic lectures, two pathology laboratory sessions, a clinicopathologic correlation session and a patient-centered wrap up discussion. There is particular emphasis on disease classification, ancillary diagnostic studies and the incorporation of laboratory testing as it pertains to patient care.
