Teaching Cases

ASH Teaching Cases emphasize standard approaches to classic hematologic problems and are designed to simulate the steps involved in diagnosing a patient, from taking the history and performing a physical exam, to ordering and interpreting lab tests, to making a final diagnosis and following the clinical course of the disease. While working through each case, learners are challenged to consider the right questions to ask at each step in the process. Each case includes a set of teaching points and a bibliography with links to references. To keep track of your progress in cases you’ve started, view all cases in progress in My Dashboard.
