Hematology-Oncology

Hematology-Oncology Ward

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.
