Thursday, 1:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

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. 

Objectives
Develop confidence in the work-up of anemia, thrombocytopenia, and in the evaluation of a variety of solid tumors.
