Transfusion Medicine Fellowship

A one-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship in Blood Banking / Transfusion Medicine is offered at the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System at Chicago. The UI Hospital is a 441 bed tertiary care university hospital which supports an active solid organ and bone marrow transplantation service. Comprehensive donor, transfusion and hemapheresis services stress clinical transfusion medicine and consultation, allowing development of technical and administrative skills. The fellow will gain extensive experience in donor recruitment and blood procurement, immunohematology, transplantation immunology (bone marrow, stem cell, liver, kidney, pancreas and small bowel transplantation), therapeutic hemapheresis, stem cell collection and processing, outpatient transfusion, histocompatibility testing, and coagulation. A rotation at a regional blood center is also offered. Research experiences are strongly encouraged.
