Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine Fellowship
This one-year, ACGME accredited program is designed to provide extensive training in all aspects of blood banking/transfusion medicine including management of tertiary/quaternary hospital-based transfusion services, reviewing all transfusion-related clinical and technical problems, such as serological test interpretation, blood component selection, transfusion reaction diagnosis, and coagulation test interpretation, covering inpatient and outpatient apheresis service, medical oversight of collection and processing of stem cells and blood components.
The fellow will rotate in three sites, including the University of Kansas Health System (TUKH), Children’s Mercy Hospital (CMH) and Community Blood Center (CBC).

Affiliated with New York Blood Center, CBC provides more than 180,000 units of blood products to nearly 60 area hospitals and almost 1,000 apheresis treatments every year, as well as donor testing activities in an FDA licensed cGMP testing environment.
