HMC Hematology7th floor, Maleng Building
Attending: Virginia Broudy, MD
On average there are 6 new patients scheduled each week, as well as 24-30 follow-up patients. The attendings who staff the clinic see the follow-ups, and the new patients are seen initially by the resident or the Hematology/Oncology fellow. Approximately 30% patients have a hematologic problem, and 70% have a solid tumor. This an excellent way to become familiar with the diagnosis and initial evaluation of common solid tumors such as lung cancer, breast cancer, and colon cancer. There is a post-clinic conference from 4:30-5:30 at which the new patients are presented and discussed.
