Hematology-Oncology

Educational Goals & Overview

The goal of rotations in the intensive care unit is to train residents in the treatment and management of critical and complex patients. The rotations include an emphasis on procedural skills and competence in difficult conversations.

Hematology-Oncology Wards

The overall purpose of the Hematology-Oncology Inpatient Ward Rotation is to train residents to competently care for complicated, hospitalized patients presenting with acute signs and symptoms of leukemia or aggressive lymphoma, undergoing treatment with inpatient treatment protocols, or experiencing cancer treatment-related side effects. They will learn to recognize the common presenting signs and symptoms of oncologic emergencies, to perform the standard diagnostic evaluation to better define the causative disorder and implement early intervention and longer-term management, to provide supportive care for malignancies and common toxicities of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and to participate in the team approach to the transition of terminal patients to palliative care.

Hematology-Oncology Consult

The overall purpose of the Hematology-Oncology consult service rotation is to train residents to competently care for hospitalized patients and outpatients presenting with signs and symptoms of malignancy or benign or malignant hematologic disorders. They will learn to recognize the common presenting signs and symptoms, to perform the standard diagnostic evaluation to better define the causative disorder, when and how to consult a Hematologist-Oncologist, and to appreciate the multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of malignancy and hematologic disorders.
