Application Process


There are two positions available on a competitive basis each year in the Transfusion Medicine Fellowship.


To apply for the Transfusion Medicine Fellowship, you must be a physician who has American citizenship or holds a valid U.S. visa.

You must fulfill the subspecialty certification requirements for the blood banking/transfusion medicine board examination offered by the American Board of Pathology (ABP). This includes having primary certification from the ABP or current primary specialty certification with another American Board of Medical Specialties board. See the American Board of Pathology website for subspecialty certification requirements. We are seeking to increase the diversity of our learners and special consideration will be given to applicants from underrepresented minorities.
