About the Program

We invite you to consider the advantages of a program that will expose you to:

  • high-powered faculty members dedicated to your success
  • comprehensive exposure to all subspecialties 
  • a state-of-the-art clinical facility 

The accomplishments of our fellowship graduates demonstrate our commitment to help you develop the necessary skills to succeed in your career endeavors. The Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine Fellowship Program gives fellows a broad comprehensive background in blood banking and transfusion medicine and provides opportunities to gain experience in donor collections, infectious disease testing, immunohematology, therapeutics, progenitor cell collections, and tissue banking. 

In training fellows, the Department strives to produce excellent practitioners. We also want our fellows to learn to be good teachers and to acquire a critical and inquiring approach not only to diagnostics, but to investigating the unsolved problems of pathology. We believe at the completion of training, graduates of the University of Iowa Department of Pathology are prepared for the challenges ahead and can look forward to the fulfillment that comes from pursuing a career that fosters life-long education.
