Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine Pathology Fellowship

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University is pleased to offer a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship in Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine.

The fellow will participate actively in an on-call schedule for transfusion medicine and therapeutic apheresis consultation. Additionally, the fellow will rotate in HLA testing, CAR-T cell therapy, and stem cell collections at OHSU. Donor center operations, donor testing, and blood collection rotations will be hosted by the American Red Cross.

The clinical and teaching responsibilities of fellows include regularly scheduled instructional conferences for pathology residents and informal and formal consultation with residents and faculty within and outside of the Pathology department. Fellows will have ample opportunities to learn and practice within a clinical context. Fellows have increasing levels of responsibility commensurate with level of performance.

In addition to their clinical duties, fellows participate in laboratory management, CAP inspection training, quality control measures, resident education, and translational research activities.
