HMS Fellowship Program in Transfusion Medicine - Clinical Rotations
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), 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
16 weeks BWH/BCH
2 weeks DFCI Cell Manipulation Core Facility
1 week American Red Cross
14 weeks Elective
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.
