Thank you for your interest in the Blood Banking/Transfusion Medicine Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
The program offers one or two-year blood banking fellowship (two years preferred) for physicians interested in transfusion medicine. The DeGowin Blood Center provides transfusion, donor center (whole blood and cytapheresis) and therapeutic hemapheresis (includes hematopoietic progenitor collection and processing) services to a large university tertiary care hospital. Thus, day-to-day exposure is provided to donor selection, blood banking serology, compatibility testing, autologous donation and preparation of special products (e.g., leukocyte-reduced, irradiated, CMV seronegative) plus special emphasis on all aspects of therapeutic and preparative hemapheresis, platelet immunology, neonatal transfusions, organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
