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.
