INTERNAL MEDICINE ELECTIVES - HEMATOLOGY/ONCOLOGY

This elective is for students with an interest in learning more about how to diagnose and treat patients with hematological and oncological disease.  Students will be members of an inpatient consult team.  The consult team usually evaluates between 1-2 consults per day.  The team consists of a medical resident, a fellow, and a staff physician.  Rounds are held once a day.   Both new consults and prior consults are discussed.  The medical student is expected to take an active role in this rotation.  Under the supervision of the fellow and the attending, he or she is expected to interview patients, perform the physical exam, review pertinent radiological and laboratory data,  as well as pathology slides with the attending or pathologist.  The student will have a great opportunity to participate and be exposed to the multidisciplinary aspect of Hematology/Oncology as a subspecialty.
