Program Description: 

This educational activity is based on case presentations and subsequent small group discussions of patients with hematologic malignancies that are being evaluated, treated and followed in the Department of Hematology and Oncology, and that have diagnostic or follow-up material evaluated in the Division of Hematopathology.  The goal of this multimodality approach is to ensure that the best patient care is being delivered by both Hematologists/Oncologists and Pathologists.
