HEME 6001 - Hematology and Oncology

5 credit hours

The Hematology & Oncology course integrates the basic and clinical sciences associated with the hematologic system and includes select oncology topics. A major emphasis is placed on using clinical presentations to discover the relationships among anatomy, embryology, physiology, microbiology, immunology, biochemistry, genetics, pharmacology and pathology. An understanding of these basic sciences will be used to learn a clinical approach to common conditions involving the blood and lymphatic systems. Reading assignments, webcast presentations and small group exercises allow students to examine basic science concepts of hematology and oncology from a clinical viewpoint. Material presented in Medical Skills and Osteopathic Principles and Practice augment this learning with physical diagnosis and osteopathic manipulative treatment skill development.
