Clinical Hematology is super specialty training post completion of a post graduate course in either ‘General Medicine’ or ‘Pediatrics’. There are inadequate training programs in the country and the current annual out-put of DM candidates cannot possibly meet the huge demand for this specialty in the country. It is widely recognized that a two year program following a basic clinical post graduate degree would be more than adequate to be considered a trained clinical hematologist. Our center is one of the largest and most comprehensive centers for hematology in the country and we are ideally suited to provide the required training. We have the resources in terms of clinical material, well established laboratory facilities and adequate number of teachers for this program to succeed. We are confident that the graduates of this program will be an asset to this country.
The main objectives of the program can be summarized as follows:
- The Clinical Hematology fellow should demonstrate a comprehensive working knowledge of the basic, cellular and molecular biology in normal hematopoiesis, hemostasis and immunology.
- The Clinical Hematology fellow should demonstrate a comprehensive working knowledge and practical competency in the diagnosis of all common pediatric and adult hematological disorders, common disorders of haemostasis, the management of common hematological pediatric and adult malignancies, recognizing the presentation, making the diagnosis, and managing the complications that can occur during the treatment of various hematological disorders.
- Candidates selected for Post-Doctoral Fellowship course have passed any qualifying exam Post MD / DipNB in General Medicine & Post MD / DipNB in Paediatrics.
