Activity Details
Activity Name: 2nd Annual UCI Hematology Symposium
Description: Annual Hematology Conference at Disney Hotel in Anaheim, CA
Needs Assessment: Overview:
The 2nd Annual UCI Hematology Symposium will provide an update on relevant trends in hematology important to specialists and primary care physicians alike.
We took into account suggestions from our attendees in designing the 2017 curriculum. Attendees from our inaugural conference (4/30/16) requested additional attention to flow cytometry, approach to the evaluation of anemia, and laboratory diagnosis. In addition, attendees requested shorter lectures with more time for discussion as well as increased emphasis on diagnostics. Topics for the 2017 agenda closely align with attendee requests and the format of each lecture now features a hybrid model that pairs a diagnostician (ie, pathologist or radiologist) with a clinician (ie, specialist in the related field) to enable a more stimulating and complete discussion of the topic.
