T32 Training Program in Hematology

Activities and Seminars

Hematology Grand Rounds:  Lecture series that covers clinical and translational topics related to adult and pediatric hematology. Mondays, 12:00 p.m.

Coagulation Rounds:  Challenging coagulation problems from the inpatient, outpatient and consult services from adult and pediatric hematology are presented for discussions on diagnosis and management. Wednesdays, 4:00 p.m. 

Myeloid Disorders Conference:  Challenging cases from the adult and pediatric hematology/oncology services are presented, pathology (bone marrows, peripheral blood and flow cytometry) is projected and discussed by hematopathologists, and cases are discussed to emphasize pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management. Roughly 60% of cases relate to benign hematology (bone marrow failure disorders and myeloproliferative diseases) and 40% relate to malignant hematology (acute leukemia). Thursdays, 12:00 p.m.

Hematology Case Conference:  Case conference run by adult Hematology Fellows. Cases from the Hematology Fellows’ clinic are presented to the faculty for advice in diagnosis and management.  Every other week Fellows formally present a case or two from their own clinic and give a 20 minute didactic. Virtually all cases pertain to benign hematology. Fridays, 12:00 p.m.

Immunology/Hematopoiesis Seminar:  Basic/translational seminar attending by laboratory and translational investigators from adult and pediatric hematology and oncology. Lectures cover cutting-edge research relating to hematopoiesis and immunology. Fridays, 3:30 p.m.

Advanced Seminars in Hematology:  A special course in benign hematology. This course operates in seminar, small group fashion. Rather than a traditional journal club format, faculty are chosen by mentors to lead in-depth discussions of key articles and other literature that have provided new insights into clinical science. Selected mentors and other faculty present “roadmaps” of their own career paths, as examples for discussions with scholars. The scholars also present their premiminary research proposals for discussion and input from the group. Through this course, our objective is to impart knowledge, but more so, to expose the scholar to successful models of clinical investigation and the process of discovery and self-directed learning.

The Annual Dr. Isadore Brodsky Lecture in Hematology:  An endowed lecture series specifically geared towards molecular hematology with an eye towards translation.
