- To gain experience in the presentation of interesting cases
to the hematology service, faculty and fellows.
- To train fellows to select an interesting patient, prepare a
detailed and informative case presentation, review the current medical
literature, and to verbally present all of this information to a group of their
mentors and peers.
Principal Teaching Method
Fellows will select an interesting or challenging case from
their clinical caseload, gleaned either from the floors, or the outpatient
clinic. The presenter is expected to review the appropriate pertinent
literature, and comprehensively review the clinical topic relevant to the case
presented. The fellow is encouraged to engage a faculty preceptor for the
conference to discuss the plan for the presentation before the conference, and
amplify the discussion at the conference.
Most Important Educational Content
The presenting fellow learns how to review the literature,
focus a discussion, and present in front of a group of faculty and peers. Presenters
and audience alike benefit from informed discussion of more unusual
hematological disorders in a “round table” format.
There are enough very interesting patients from the Hematology Consult Services at Montefiore-Moses to provide the fellow with an opportunity to review the literature about a specific aspect of the case. The Hematology Division at Montefiore-Moses has a small conference room with blackboard, screen, 35mm projector, and overhead projector.
