Transfusion Medicine Fellowship - William Beaumont Hospital
Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine Fellowship
Description: The Blood Bank at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak,
Michigan, has begun accepting applications for its ACGME-accredited one-year
fellowship program beginning July 2015. This Blood Banking/Transfusion
Medicine fellowship, established in 1979, is a twelve month ACGME-accredited
program. The fellowship is divided into 3 sites: Beaumont Hospital (Royal
Oak) Blood Bank (10 months), American Red Cross Southeastern Michigan Regional
Blood Service (1 month), and Karmanos Cancer Center (1 month). Beaumont
Hospital (Royal Oak) is a 1070 bed facility, which has an active transfusion
service supporting a Level 1 Trauma Center, an expanding solid organ transplant
program, and busy OB/GYN and Hematology/Oncology services. Blood donor center
experience is obtained at the American Red Cross Southeastern Michigan Region
Blood Services, which is a large regional blood center with an associated
reference laboratory. Training for Transfusion Medicine support of stem cell
transplantation programs is obtained through the Bone Marrow Transplant Program
at the Karmanos Cancer Center, which is a university-based program providing
autologous, related and unrelated stem cell transplants under certification of
the National Marrow Donor Program.
The overall goal of this fellowship is to prepare a physician to become a
competent Transfusion Medicine Specialist for any clinical sitting; therefore,
upon completion of this fellowship the fellow has learned the essential
administrative, laboratory, and clinical aspects to be a director of a blood
center and/or hospital transfusion service.

Pathology, or subspecialty certification in hematology from another board of
the ABMS. Candidates must also hold a license (or eligibility) to practice
medicine in the State of Michigan.
Stipends: Salary is commensurate with the level of postgraduate training.
