HMS Fellowship Program in Transfusion Medicine - Clinical Rotations

Collectively, the Harvard teaching hospitals transfuse approximately 190,000 blood components per year in support of a complete range of clinical services, including pediatric and adult transplantation, intensive care, and centers for the treatment of sickle cell anemia and hemophilia. This environment offers unparalleled exposure to all aspects of transfusion medicine.

The first year of the program provides core clinical training in transfusion medicine. Fellows are initially based for four months at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), or the combined clinical site of: Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) / Children's Hospital Boston (CHB) / Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). The fellows then rotate to each of the affiliate institutions, as well as to the DFCI Cell Manipulation Core Facility. Elective rotations may be undertaken at any of the Harvard hospitals.

A typical rotation schedule:

16 weeks MGH
8 weeks BIDMC
8 weeks BWH/DFCI/CHB
4 weeks DFCI Cell manipulation core facility
1 week American Red Cross
11 weeks Electives

With approval of the Fellowship Committee, an additional 1-2 years of basic science, translational, or clinical research training may be added to the fellowship.
