Bone Marrow Biopsy Training

  1. All new fellows will do marrows on the inpatient services supervised by senior fellows until they have demonstrated competence.
  2. Logs will be kept of all procedures.
  3. Each new fellow will arrange with Day Hospital mid-levels to do marrows with them. The fellows will keep a log of these. Each new fellow will do a minimum of 5 marrows in that setting. Whenever the mid-levels assess the fellow as competent (at any point after doing 5), Dr. Christopher Ehmann will then observe the fellow doing a marrow in Day Hospital. Documentation of their competence will be sent to the program coordinator. Once judged competent, the fellow will then be able to do marrows independently. Remedial training will be available, as needed.
