The Tulane University Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship program is dedicated to training individuals to be competent, humanistic, and scholarly physicians. Fellows are expected to provide comprehensive care to adults patients presenting with Hematological and Oncologic disease in both the impatient and ambulatory settings. Specific goals are listed below.
Fellows are expected to read extensively, to use texts only as a base of information and to seek out primary source material in the literature to develop skills in critical analysis of data. The aim is to prepare fellows for a lifetime of continuing scholarship.
The Section of Hematology and Medical Oncology based didactic methods include Grand Rounds Conference, Morbidity and Mortality Conference, BMT/Leukemia Conference, Tumor Board, Journal Club and Study Guide Conference.
The attending physician providing direct supervision for the resident will provide a written evaluation on www.MedHub.com. Fellows will be evaluated on the six core competencies and will be given numerical scores..
Written evaluations will be kept on www.MedHub.com. Fellows are able to view their evaluations anytime they desire. Fellows are encouraged to view their rotation evaluations as soon as possible. More frequent evaluation and feedback will be done as needed on an individual basis. Fellows will evaluate the rotation and the staff at the end of each rotation by using the MedHub system.
