Transfusion Medicine Fellowship
Our mission is to guide and educate physicians as they develop the skills and expertise to treat patients, and to support other physicians and technical staff in delivering the optimal transfusion medicine related care. The transfusion medicine physicians in training focus on implementation of their knowledge in support of direct, and indirect, patients and donors care.
To mold inquisitive fellows into transfusion medicine professionals who will go on to be national and international leaders in their field.
