Hematology Oncology

The Hematology Oncology Service offers the student the opportunity to see a large number of patients with metastatic solid tumor and hematopoietic malignancies, both in an inpatient and outpatient setting. The student will have the opportunity to perform history and physical examinations on these patients to gain a better appreciation of the natural history of malignant neoplasms. Because this service is heavily involved in clinical therapeutic research, the student will be able to understand the generation of research protocols, the correct construction of such a protocol, the gathering the data and the ability to interpret results and conclusions.
