Regularly scheduled weekly teaching provides rotating residents deep insights into the relevant topics of haematology. Our residents have an opportunity to evaluate our program and faculty which helps improve our programs and education.
Rotating residents enjoy hematology teaching, both in the in-patient and out-patient settings, at our two teaching hospitals—the Health Sciences Centre and St. Boniface General Hospital. They also have an opportunity to experience out-patient care in malignant hematology at Victoria General Hospital’s Buhler Cancer Center.
In-patient and out-patient training
In-patient education is case-based, and focuses on the diagnosis, management and follow-up of hematologic disorders. Out-patient education prepares the learners to manage non-acute ambulatory patients through our various clinics. Both services provide ample opportunity to hone procedural skills including bone marrow biopsies, lumbar punctures and intrathecal chemotherapy administration.
Royal College accreditation
This program is designed in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Fellows will receive training in clinical hematology (benign and malignant), hematopathology, hemostasis, transfusion medicine, pediatric hematology and palliative care and medical oncology.
Our biannual Blood Disorder Day conference is an example of high quality outreach education to support the diagnosis and management of a variety of haematologic diseases. This also provides fellows the opportunity to present and help educate primary care physicians and allied professionals which allows them to fulfill their various Royal College roles including educator, expert and scholar.
Complete residency details, including program curriculum, application requirements and selection criteria can be found on the Canadian Resident Matching Service website.
