I’m putting the final touches on a new study guide!

This one is a complete hematopathology guide that covers everything you need to know for medical (and dental) boards. Many of you have downloaded the free Top 10 Anemias guide (if you haven’t, it’s on the sidebar to the left). Well, the new one is kind of like that guide on steroids: it covers all the major benign and malignant hematopathologic diseases, with sections on clinical features, pathogenesis, morphology, immunophenotyping, and genetics for each disorder. It’s over 100 pages long (with tons of photos, helpful hints and study tips), so there will be a nominal fee (but one that is way, way less than what you’d pay for a dreadful big-publisher board review book).

Here’s a short table of contents:

Benign leukocytoses
Acute myeloid leukemia
Acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Chronic myeloproliferative disorders
Chronic lymphoproliferative disorders
Lymph node disorders
Benign lymph node disorders
Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
Hodgkin disease

Study questions

I’ve been teaching hematopathology to medical students for the past 19 years, and to dental students for the past 5 years.

Wow, I’m old.

Oh well. It’s given me a good idea of what’s important, and how it needs to be presented. As is true in all disciplines and organ systems, in hemepath there’s so much information that you simply have to find a way to pare it down to the essentials and build a nice framework to hold all the new concepts. I think this study guide does a great job of that, if I do say so myself.

So if you are a medical student or dental student and boards are looming large – or if you’re facing hematopathology right now in your regular coursework – check back here soon: this guide’s for you.
