The Pathology Department at Nus participates in about 60 rounds every week in different areas. The haematology round, held twice a month via video, is coordinated by the centre for laboratory medicine at Nus and is part of the normal routines since the late 1990s. Hospitals in the northern region notify the managers of the round when they have patients to include in rounds. Regular participants are physicians from the Pathology Department and haematoma-pathologists at Nus, and haematologists from, for example, Sunderbyn, Östersund and Skellefteå. Occasionally, biomedical scientists and geneticists also join the round.
