Hematologists who specialize in research must be detail oriented, organized, and keen on solving problems. Those who work with patients must have strong communication skills to deal with a wide range of people as well as health care support staff. Compassion and patience are essential skills for treating patients who may be extremely ill and for sharing information about their health and prognosis with them and their families.
