The Hematology-Oncology Interest Group is seeking students that want to learn more about a disease that permeates nearly all specialties in medicine: cancer. As future doctors, we will all get to work with patients that are living with or recovering from this "mother of all diseases." Our goal is to provide students with the information that they need to help treat this all-encompassing malady and to help them explore the constantly evolving fields of hematology and oncology. We plan on having monthly talks from physicians and specialists that work across a variety of IM subspecialties including radiation oncology, surgery, and palliative care. Some of the activities that we hope to host later this semester include phlebotomy clinics, blood donation drives, and hosting a booth for the Be the Match bone marrow registry. If you want to explore a multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach to medicine, regardless of specialty, then this club is for you!
