Course Name : Hematology

Code(Credit) : CUTM1731 (3-2-0)

Course Objectives

  • The overall aims are that the student should obtain advanced knowledge of the most common hematologic diseases & understanding the concept of Blood cells and other blood components.
  • Be able to handle an investigation of hemorrhagic disorder and laboratory abnormalities such as anaemia, polycythemia, leukopenia, leukocytosis, thrombocytopenia, thrombocytosis, elevated ESR etc within hematology.
  • Clinically relevant hematological analysis for deeper understanding of Evaluate normal and abnormal cell morphology with associated diseases and other blood components .

Learning Outcomes

  • Differentiate various laboratory test findings with their associated clinical conditions.
  • Identify the various skills necessary to perform blood counts, evaluate blood elements,and report results within the stated limits of accuracy.
  • Describe the various components of blood ,their functions,and roles in various disease states.
  • To be able to demonstrate good skills in the relevant Hematology laboratory methodology.
  • Collection of blood for the investigations.
  • Be able to distinguish the developmental stages of blood cells.It will also cover Bone marrow examination.
  • To learn about tests carried out for hematological investigations.
  • To be able to carry out blood sampling.
