The Yale Transfusion Medicine Fellowship Program accepts three fellows/academic year. We are currently FILLED for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 academic years; we are now accepting applications for 2020-21 and 2021-22 academic years.


Applications are accepted until December 1st. 7 months in advance of the start date, e.g., December 1, 2019 for the 2020-21 fellowship. However early application is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED as interviews start as soon as applications from qualified candidates are received and decisions are announced accordingly on a rolling basis.

We also 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.

Cap Application

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.
