Division of Hematology & Hematologic Malignancies

Welcome to the Division of Hematology & Hematologic Malignancies

 The scientific focus of our division is the study of blood and bone marrow in health and disease. Our physicians treat patients with blood cancer, such as leukemias and lymphomas; clotting disorders, such as hemophilia; and diseases of iron metabolism, such as hemochromatosis. Starting with Maxwell Wintrobe, one of the founding fathers of Hematology and the University of Utah Medical School, our division can look back at a long-standing tradition of excellence in research, clinical care and teaching.

80 Years of Clinical Hematology

2022 is the 80th anniversary of the publication of the first hematology textbook - Clinical Hematology, by Dr. Maxwell M. Wintrobe. The first 6 editions of the textbook (1942-1967) were written entirely by Dr. Wintrobe. Starting with the 7th edition in 1974, additional editors were recruited. The book’s name was changed to Wintrobe’s Clinical Hematology with the 9th edition in 1993. A total of 14 editions have been published to date. Dr. Wintrobe died in 1986. The early editions of Clinical Hematology did much to establish hematology as a subspeciality of internal medicine. The figure shows all editions of the textbook (shown chronologically left to right) published since 1942 assembled by the authors, two of whom (JHW, PFB) were trained by and worked with Dr. Wintrobe.
