Haematology is the branch of medicine which is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases of the blood and bone marrow as well as of the immunologic, hemostatic (blood clotting) and vascular systems. Because of the nature of blood, the science of hematology profoundly affects the understanding of many diseases.
Medical doctors who work in haematology are known as haematologists. Their routine work may range from the management of the haematology laboratory, work at the microscope viewing blood films and bone marrow slides, interpretation of various haematological test results, care of in-patients and care of out-patients.
