The Transfusion Medicine Fellowship equips fellows with the essential competencies in the clinical, technical, investigational, and administrative aspects of blood banking, coagulation, and therapeutic apheresis.
The fellowship provides an integrated experience involving the medical direction of the University of New Mexico Hospital's (UNMH) blood bank and transfusion/apheresis services that supports the state's only level I trauma center and NCI designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. Fellows spend a month working with the regional Vitalant blood center with time and fellowship funds set aside for the fellow to visit Vitalant corporate office and CTS laboratories (that test over 4 million blood donations annually) in Phoenix, AZ. The fellowship includes a month-long rotation at the Presbyterian Hospital, downtown Albuquerque, working with a private practice pathology group that oversees that hospital's infusion and apheresis services where extracorporeal photopheresis is performed.
Transfusion technologies at UNMH includes the BloodTrack (remote blood allocation refrigerators), gel, and tube immunoserology testing, ROTEM viscoelastic testing, as well as a sophisticated HLA laboratory. The full-service apheresis and transfusion service is complemented by a FACT accredited stem cell collection program. Other benefits to the fellowship, include generous support for national meeting attendance and flexible elective rotation scheduling. Fellows may choose to be involved in research.
