EFFICIENT AND HIGH-YIELD:
I created this website in 2014. I wrote all the questions myself, and I tried to create high-yield questions with succinct explanations. The latter should be helpful for rapid fire review prior to a board examination. I kept the explanations brief to get the main teaching point across. I truly focus on writing the most high yield questions possible. I always thought practice questions were a good way to increase one's knowledge base. We now have an App available for Android and the iPhone; it is part of the subscription.
Since I created this site in 2014, over 4000 Hematologists/Oncologist have registered. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and I am truly humbled and honored that so many have used to website to help in preparation for their Hematology/Oncology Board examination.
GOOD BOARD PREPARATION:
These questions should be helpful in preparing for the Medical Oncology and Hematology Board examinations. In addition, these questions will serve as a refresher for those who are recertifying for their boards or for the ASCO inservice exam. Lastly, the site is outstanding for Hematologists/Oncologists who are interested in increasing their knowledge base. The questions cover all of Benign Hematology, Malignant Hematology and Solid tumors.
Based on clinical situations I encounter in my clinic, I will update the questions to keep them up-to-date and relevant. As the field of Hematology and Oncology constantly evolves, so will the questions. I have always been the type who is humbled by how much I do not know, so if any issues/mistakes are found with any of the questions, I will absolutely edit/fix them. The field of Hematology/Oncology changes at such a rapid pace and it can be daunting. However, I like challenges and truly go over all the questions every few months to update any outdated questions/answers.
As most of the users of this site will be trainees, I want to keep the price low. This has been more a labor of love than anything else, and the cost is only 49.99 for a 6 month subscription. You will have the option to renew the subscription for 24.99 for an additional 6 months. We also have subscription options for 1, 2 or 3 years of access; all have been priced quite inexpensively. The low cost is largely to help defray the cost of creating this website and maintaining it. With a subscription, you will have access to over 1600 Medical Oncology, Malignant Hematology, and Benign Hematology questions. Each question has a detailed answer/explanation; most also have supporting references. I wrote questions on every tumor type. An App for both the iPhone and Android is included with the subscription. Of note, if a fellowship program is interested in purchasing the Question Bank for their fellows, we will provide an additional discount. See the Membership Option Icon on the front page.
I hope these questions will serve as an adjunct to other outstanding resources including ASH-SAP, ASCO-SEP, ASCO Question Bank, the MD Anderson and George Washington Board Review Course and the NCCN guidelines. I think that going through questions is a fun way to learn more about Oncology and Hematology.
