MEF Program Summary

The specialty

The specialty of Hematology and Hemotherapy, according to its current conception, consists of four major closely related areas: hematology clinic, hematology morphology and biology, hemostasis and thrombosis, and immunohematology and transfusion medicine.

The reasons why this specialty is one of the medical disciplines that have progressed most in knowledge and technology in recent decades lies in the integration of biological and clinical knowledge, which have allowed a better understanding of the etiopathogenic mechanisms of blood diseases and hematopoietic organs, facilitating the development of more appropriate guidelines for clinical action. All this has contributed to the fact that Hematology and Haemotherapy has acquired a remarkable degree of maturity, justifying its permanence in the future as an integrated specialty, since we consider that this is the ideal framework for the training of future specialists.

Hematology and Haemotherapy participates in both the clinical area and the Laboratory and Haemotherapy, the integration of these three aspects being the raison d'être of the specialty. All these areas must be of balanced importance in the training process of our future specialists. Since the aim of this period is the training of hematologists with global knowledge of the specialty.

We wish all residents who have chosen this exciting specialty, to face this very special period with the greatest possible concern and motivation to achieve high quality training and a privileged position that will allow you to be competitive in the current job market.
