  • 1. Name of rotation: Oncology Elective Division: Hematology/Oncology Course Director: Barry Meisenberg, M.D. Site(s): UMMC Duration of rotation: [ ] one month only [x ] 2 weeks possible General description of the rotation including educational purpose, rationale or value: The resident will perform traditional consults with the consult team (consisting of an attending and fellow). Tasks will include the initial evaluation of patients with cancer (both inpatient and outpatient consults), ongoing patient follow-up during their hospital stay, assistance with procedures required for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer (thoracocentesis, paracentesis, bone marrow aspirate and biopsy, lymph node aspirates), and review of pathology slides from patients seen during the rotation. Residents will attend a private practice or clinic at least two half-days per week. Resident responsibilities, including interns and residents: Residents will be required to perform consults (initial patient exam, compilation of patient histories) and present each patient to the team attending. The resident will then be required to provide follow up treatment as required for each patient during the rotation. The resident will also be expected to attend the conferences listed with this rotation. Educational Objectives: An expanded version of the competencies is listed under Core Competencies in Internal Medicine. Those listed here are specific to this rotation. Since residents may choose this elective during any year of training, PGY-1 goals and objectives are distinct for those for upper level residents, and PGY-2 and 3 goals and objectives are similar. During this rotation, the PGY-1 resident will: Patient Care 1. Improve their ability to evaluate, interpret and suggest treatment for patients with cancer. 2. Experience the current practice of oncology as seen both in the academic and private setting. 3. Improve ability to perform invasive diagnostic tests as required in the treatment and evaluation of cancer. Medical Knowledge 1. Understand the current evaluation and treatment of the major tumor types seen in the United States (colon, breast, lung, and prostate). Practice-Based Learning - See Core Competencies Interpersonal and Communication Skills – See Core Competencies Professionalism – See Core Competencies System-Based Practice – See Core Competencies During this rotation, the PGY-2 or 3 resident will: Patient Care 1. Evaluate, interpret and suggest treatment for patients with cancer in an independent manner with appropriate review of primary source literature. 2. Experience the current practice of oncology as seen both in the academic and private setting. 3. Enhance skills in performing invasive diagnostic tests as required in the treatment and evaluation of cancer. Medical Knowledge 1. Describe the current evaluation and treatment of the major tumor types seen in the United States (colon, breast, lung, and prostate).

  • 2. Check all principle teaching methods used during this rotation: [x ] Attending teaching rounds [x ] Interdisciplinary rounds [x ] Patient management discussions [x ] Small group discussions [x ] Conferences specific to rotation [x ] Bedside clinical rounds [x ] Individual instruction of procedures [x ] Review of diagnostic studies, [ ] Other: ________________________ including radiology Describe the most important educational content, including the mix of diseases, patient characteristics, types of clinical encounters, procedures and services: Residents will see a broad sampling of patient mix as is characteristic of patients at a large teaching hospital. Clinical encounters will be largely on a consulting basis except where there is a resident expressed desire to see patients in a private oncologists office. Procedures performed will be dictated by the patient and tumor mix for the month. Check the principal ancillary education materials used: [ ] Reading lists [x ] Pathologic material [x ] Radiologic studies [ ] Other noninvasive studies [x ] Handouts on relevant topics [x ] Articles from the literature [ ] Other: ________________________ [ ] Case studies Methods used to evaluate the resident and the rotation: [x ] Evaluation of residency performance and professionalism [x ] Evaluation of attending teaching skills and other attributes [x ] Rotation assessment by resident [x ] Observation of resident's clinical competency [ ] Observation of resident's leadership and teaching skills [x ] Review of the resident's history/physical exam, progress notes and documentation of procedures in the chart [x ] Resident's attendance of rounds and conferences monitored [ ] Other: ________________________ Identify strengths and limitations specific to the resources of the sponsoring institution: The Cancer Center sees a broad range of tumor types and presentations as is expected from a tertiary cancer center. Specific patient mix and referrals, however, will depend on the current treatment options which are being offered through the cancer center and for which patients are being referred for consideration of treatment.
