The Division of Hematology and Hematological Malignancies within the Department of Medicine, University of Calgary, provides comprehensive academic and clinical consultative services at all Alberta Health Services (AHS) hospitals as well as the Tom Baker Cancer Centre (TBCC).
Section members have active inpatient services and outpatient ambulatory clinics for hematology at the Foothills Medical Centre (FMC), Peter Lougheed Centre (PLC) and South Health Campus (SHC). Hematology consultations are also performed at the Rockyview General Hospital (RGH) with future sub-specialty clinics to come at Richmond Road Diagnostic Treatment Centre (RRDTC).
The sectional administrative structure bridges the Calgary hospitals as well as the TBCC, involving the Benign and Malignant Hematology Programs as well as the Bone Marrow Transplant Program.
Dr. Andrew Daly, Clinical Associate Professor is the Calgary Zone Hematology Section Chief for AHS and the director of the Alberta Bone Marrow Transplant Program. The leader of the TBCC Hematology Tumor Group is Dr. Carolyn Owen and Dr. Man-Chiu Poon is the leader of the Southern Alberta Rare Blood and Bleeding Disorders Program.
The Section has a thriving PGME program led by Dr. Mona Shafey. In addition to the Residency Training Program, there are fellowship programs in Lymphoma, Bone Marrow Transplant, and Hemostasis. Section members are involved in clinical trials at the TBCC and translational research located in laboratories at the Heritage Medical Research Building. Studies are ongoing in the areas of lymphoma, leukemia, myeloma, bone marrow transplant, and rare blood and bleeding disorders.
The Division is made up of thirty-three physicians located at the FMC, PLC, SHC and TBCC. Many of these physicians are part of the Bone Marrow Transplant Program and are very involved in the clinical, research and educational aspects of this area. Others have practices focused in benign hematology, including Rare Blood and Bleeding Disorders and Thrombosis. Those treating malignant disease have clinics at the TBCC, UCMC and the PLC. Many of these physicians include general hematology in their practice.
