To find out why people choose to become hematologists, watch these video interview excerpts from members of the American Society of Hematology.
To practice as a hematologist, you must have eight years of education beyond high school, which includes medical school, medical residency, and a fellowship.
Three years in a medical residency, typically in internal medicine or pediatrics, although other general residency programs may be used as well. People who want to become hematologists must have a desire to serve patients, be self-motivated, and be able to survive the pressures and long hours of medical education and practice. A hematologist is a medical doctor who has been specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of blood disorders.
Hematologists may travel between several different locations, including a hospital or other medical facility (where they may perform surgeries and other medical procedures), a lab (where they analyze blood samples from patients), and a private office (where they do paperwork, read up on research, and write up their own research findings). Examine patients to obtain information about symptoms that can be correlated to a specific blood disorder (in order to make a proper diagnosis). Understand and perform a variety of general laboratory techniques on blood samples and other fluids from a patient to make a diagnosis, including electrophoresis, immunoprecipitation, cytochemistry, southern blots, northern blots, flow cytometry, methods of analyzing DNA and RNA (such as polymerase chain reaction [PCR] and microarrays), and others.
Perform more specialized hematology clinical laboratory techniques (such as blood counts, osmotic fragility, platelet function studies, tissue typing [such as HLA typing], and morphologic tissue evaluation) to make a diagnosis. Diagnose and develop treatment plans for specific bleeding disorders, such as hemophilia, by performing relevant tests (such as thrombin-related assays, tests using coagulation factors and inhibitor assays, and bleeding time tests). Look for hematologic malignancies in a patient using cytogenetics, such as fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH). Understand and perform tests related to red blood cells (RBCs), such as RBC enzyme assays and microscopic identification of RBC parasites.
Develop a chemotherapy plan for a patient with cancer, possibly working with an oncologist.
Use imaging technologies, including ultrasounds, nuclear medicine studies, computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and combinations of these technologies.
Use advanced blood banking techniques, including banking and matching samples by specific blood parameters.
Use an understanding of how different medical drugs can affect a patient, both negatively and positively. Train and direct staff and medical students in the proper methods needed to acquire and handle samples from patients.
Educate physicians, students, and personnel in other medical laboratory professions such as medical technology, oncology, and cytotechnology.

These curs were bred to work, and if deprived of the opportunity to hunt, guard, or work around a farm they will grow anxious and bored. The Mountain Cur was originally brought to America from Europe by the settlers of the mountains in Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, then later Arkansas and Oklahoma, to guard family and property as well as chase and tree game.[1] These dogs enabled the settlers to provide meat and pelts for personal use or trade, making them very valuable in the unforgiving frontier environment. Later the Tennessee Treeing Brindle Association ( Registering any long-tailed brindle dogs), and the Kemmer Stock Breeders Association, who registers any and all OMCBA registered dogs, regardless of bloodlines.
The Mountain View Cur was developed by selecting only the very best certified tree dogs out of a certain pure Mt.
The Mountain Cur stands 18-26 inches (46-66 cm) at the withers and weighs between 30-60 lbs (16-29 kg). Color: Brindle, black, dark brown, black and brindle, red, yellow and can have white points.

MUZZLE – The muzzle is shorter than the skull, moderately broad with a well-defined underjaw.
TEETH – The Mountain Cur has a complete set of evenly spaced, white teeth meeting in a scissors bite. EYES – Eyes are large in size, set wide apart with inner and outer corners on the same horizontal line. The tail is set low and either naturally bobbed, bobbed, or of medium length, carried high. Height for a mature male ranges between 18 to 26 inches and 16 to 24 inches for a mature female. Here's a resume sample for a Leadership Trainer, focusing on executive management, organizational leadership, team building, client relations, performance enhancement, and alliance building. Susie (not her real name) wants to make a career change from senior management to leadership training. This resume example was developed using one of the professional resume templates from my Ready-Made Resume Builder.
This resume was created using a resume template from Susan Ireland's Ready-Made Resumes. Filed under Executive Management Resume Samples, Teacher Resume Samples and tagged Age Discrimination, Combination Resume Samples, Promotions.
The majority of Mountain Curs are bred specifically for treeing and trailing small game, like squirrel and raccoons. Soon after, much controversy over the breed standard caused Hugh Stephen and Carl McConnell to leave the OMCBA and they founded the Stephen Stock Mt.
The Ultimate Hunting Dog Reference Book: A Comprehensive Guide to More Than 60 Sporting Breeds. Prior to that time, dogs of this type could only be found in very remote, rural areas and there were no organized breeding records.
Open, semi-open, or silent on track the Mountain Cur has a clear bark that can be heard a long distance. When viewed from the side, the muzzle is slightly shorter than the skull and joined by a definite stop.
The upper arm is long and wide, and forms an apparent 90-degree angle with the shoulder blade. Back is broad, strong, of moderate length, and level, blending into a muscular, slightly arched loin with slight to moderate tuck up.
The bone, angulation, and musculature of the hindquarters are in balance with the forequarters. When the dog is standing, the short, strong rear pasterns are perpendicular to the ground, and viewed from the rear, parallel to one another. Susie's job objective statement is long, but it's quick to read because she listed items in three columns. The combination resume format features Susie's transferable skills — ones that will be valued in her new leadership training career. Notice how the promotions listed near the top of page one send a message that this job seeker's an achiever.
Special care was taken not to reveal Susie's age in order to avoid age discrimination in her job search.
Consistently awarded high rankings from a prestigious industry watchdog, the Singer Report.
They’re also used for hunting big game like bear and wild boar as well being just an all-purpose farm dog.
With the advent of World War II, many of the families who had bred them left the rural areas and went to work in factories in the war effort.

It has been established, through the research of the late David Carr, that the cur as a type of hunting & herding dog has existed in Britain since at least the 13th century.
The most common strains of Mountain Cur included the McConnell, Stephens, Ledbetter, Arline and York strains. When a hot track is not immediately available, the Mountain Cur will circle and drift on a cold track until it locates a hot track.
The ribs extend well back and are well sprung out from the spine, then curving down and inward to form a deep body. Viewed from any position, legs turn neither in nor out, nor do feet cross or interfere with each other.
At the end of her Professional Experience, she created a section entitled "Previous experience includes" that contains no dates. They are not however dogs to be trifled with, historically many a cur died fighting to protect his family from hostile natives and dangerous predators. No other Mt Cur Strain has ever been bred under their strict selection and breeding standards. The head is broad with a moderate stop, and a muzzle slightly shorter than the length of skull. Four individuals, Hugh Stephens and Woody Huntsman of Kentucky, Carl McConnell of Virginia and Dewey Ledbetter of Tennessee are given credit for saving the breed from dying out and setting the Mountain Cur breed standard. Curs were held in high regard by the pioneers and few were sold after acceptance into a family.
This cur is the source for later cattle dogs such as the Welsh Corgis, the famous Smithfield and the Old English Sheepdog.
On the last weekend of September, 1991, a group of men and women met at Robert and Lou Ella Kemmer’s house and formed a new breed club that registered a strain of line-bred cur that became known as the Kemmer Stock Mountain Cur. This breed is intelligent, with a strong desire to please, so, despite its strong treeing instincts on all game, the Mountain Cur is easily discouraged from tracking unwanted game.
Mainly bred in Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, and Tennessee, it has been registered with the United Kennel Club since 1998. After its arrival in colonial America in the 17th century it became the source for other cur breeds including the modern Mt Cur, and the Blackmouth Cur of Old Yeller fame.
This is a dog bred for stamina and faults should be penalized to the degree that they detract from that goal. These men were Hugh Stephens and Woody Huntsman of Kentucky, Dewey Ledbetter of Tennessee, and Carl McConnell of Virginia. The Mountain Cur should be evaluated as a working dog, and exaggerations or faults should be penalized in proportion to how much they interfere with the dog’s ability to work.
Scars should neither be penalized nor regarded as proof of a dog’s working abilities. Curs helped feed the family and many of these mountain people bought food, clothes, and other necessities with money from furs caught by their Mt.
