This course will include involvement in the diagnosis and care of children with hematologic and oncologic diseases. The student will be involved directly with these patients under the supervision of the pediatric hematology fellows. During this time, he or she should become conversant with the general area of pediatric hematology and be trained in the diagnostic procedures including bone marrow examination and other routine and special procedures used in this subspecialty area. The special emphasis placed on the psychological aspects of these diseases for the child and the family will be part of the training experience. The complications that commonly occur in patients on chemotherapy make these patients particularly appropriate for a broad experience. Offered in Modules I-XII. Prerequisite: PED 900.
