Applications must be completed by September 1, however early completion is encouraged.
Applications are accepted until September 1, 10 months in advance of the start date, e.g., September 1, 2008 for the 2009-10 fellowship, interviews may start as soon as we have qualified candidates and decisions announced accordingly.
We do encourage those interested in our program to notify us of that interest up to several years in advance, especially for those who may be oriented toward the physician-scientist track, since this requires coordination with research programs in individual laboratories.
Applicants may also use the standardized CAP fellowship application
as a replacement for our application if you prefer. In that case, please be sure to include all the requested information on our application form (e.g., statement of your interest in Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine) in an appropriate place on the CAP form, as well as the additional data requested by the CAP form itself. If using our form, please send a CV, statement of your interest in Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine and have letters of reference forwarded by three individuals - one of those letters should be from the Chair or the residency director of your prior training program.
