Overview of Hematology

The Queen's Residency Training Program in Adult Hematology is a 2 year program fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. We typically accept 2 residents per year and as such there are presently 4 residents in the program. 

The CanMeds based curriculum is offered over thirteen four-week blocks each year.  In the first year of the program, residents split their time between clinical hematology (clinics, ward, and consults) and hematopathology.  A research block is also provided.  The second year includes further rotations in clinical hematology and hematopathology, in addition to rotations in Pediatric Hematology, Community Hematology, Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation, and three elective blocks. A particular strength of the Queen's Hematology program is our flexibility to individual training needs, we can really tailor the program to suit any career goals.

The Resident Clinic is a weekly half-day clinic that runs continuously across the two years, concurrent with other rotations. Each resident will have assigned new patients who she/he will follow longitudinally. It also serves as a follow-up clinic for discharged inpatients seen by residents on the Consult or Ward service. Attendance by each resident is continuous, except when away for out-of-town rotations.

Please note:  The order of rotations may vary
