This Blood Bank and Transfusion Medicine Fellowship Program provides experience in all aspects of blood banking in a tertiary care hospital which houses a multi-organ transplant center, including bone marrow transplantation, a large hematology/oncology service and an extensive surgical program. The blood bank provides over 100,000 units of blood and components annually, and includes an AABB-accredited Reference Laboratory.

Exposure to all aspects of blood procurement is provided through the cooperative participation of the American Red Cross Southeastern Michigan Blood Services.
