NYBCe Transfusion Medicine Fellowship Program

Over the past 35 years, NYBCe’s Transfusion Medicine Fellowship Program has trained more than 100 specialists in transfusion medicine. The core one-year program is ACGME-accredited and designed to train physicians interested in acquiring the competence necessary for American Board of Pathology sub-specialty certification in blood banking/ transfusion medicine.

Fellows spend the year both at NYBCe and at one of three partner hospitals:

The one-year core program consists of the following formal rotations:

  • Blood services, collections, regulatory affairs
  • Immunohematology and Genomics Laboratory
  • Hospital transfusion services
  • Clinical services, therapeutic apheresis, perioperative autologous transfusion, stem cell collection
  • Coagulation
  • HLA Laboratory 
  • Cord blood public bank
  • Cellular therapy laboratory
  • Research

A two-year research track is available for selected candidates interested in pursuing an academic career in transfusion medicine.


Candidates must be eligible for an unrestricted active license to practice medicine in New York State and must fulfill the prerequisites for subspecialty certification as defined by the American Board of Pathology (ABP). This includes eligibility in CP, AP/CP, or another ABMS board as defined by the ABP.

Available Positions and How to Apply

  • Up to four positions per year.
  • Positions are now available for 2025.
  • Admissions are rolling. We prefer to receive complete applications starting in April, two years prior to the intended start date (i.e. 2025 will be April 1, 2023); however, we will accept applications until available positions are filled. The website is updated when we have closed applications for a given year. That status may change if we have unexpected attrition, so applicants should check back if they have continued interest.
  • Potential applicants in the country on a H1B Visa, please ensure that your visa is transferable and will remain current during the one-year fellowship.
  • Email us to receive an application or for further information.
