Fellow Perspective

Why Did You Choose Transfusion Medicine?

Transfusion Medicine provides a unique opportunity within Pathology and Laboratory Medicine to participate actively in patient care and work with other clinical services to optimize transfusion-related care.

What Is Unique About The Program?

Faculty are interested and invested in educating trainees. The Blood Management Program here is a large part of the service, and provides the opportunity to interact with clinical teams while learning about blood management and transfusion-related medical issues.

What Do You Like About Living In Rochester?

The area is progressive and filled with festivals, live music, museums, and other activities. Plus, I prefer the winters here to the summers in the South.
