Abstract

Background: The Education Committee of the American Society for Veterinary Clinical Pathology (ASVCP) identified a need for improved structure and guidance in training residents in clinical pathology. To begin to meet this need, guidelines for training in clinical chemistry were published in 2003. Objective: The goal of this report is to define learning objectives and competencies in hematology, including coagulation and immunohematology. Methods: These guidelines were developed and written with the input of ASVCP Education Committee members and peer experts. Results: The primary objectives of training in hematology are: 1) to accrue a thorough, extensive, and relevant knowledge base of the types, principles, and properties of hematology tests and concepts of pathophysiology in animals; 2) to develop abilities to reason, think critically, communicate effectively, and exercise judgment in hematologic data interpretation and investigative problem-solving; and 3) to acquire technical and statistical skills important in hematology and laboratory operations. We also provide options and ideas for training activities and identify hematology resources useful for clinical pathology faculty and staff, training program coordinators, and residents. Conclusions: The guidelines define expected competencies that will help ensure proficiency, leadership, and the advancement of knowledge in veterinary hematology and provide a useful framework for didactic and clinical activities in resident-training programs. The learning objectives can readily be adapted to institutional and individual needs, interests, goals, and resources.
