University of Texas– McGovern School of Medicine, Department of Pathology
Assistant Professor or Associate Professor - Blood Bank / Hemotherapy
Nature of Work:
This position has two components; blood banking/apheresis and hemotherapy.
Blood Banking - This position is part of the transfusion medicine service and provides blood banking and apheresis coverage at the Memorial Hermann Hospital- Texas Medical Center for a broad array of medical and surgical clinical services, including a Level I trauma center, the heart & vascular institute and transplant services, as well as the UT Physicians Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center. The physician in this role is expected to participate in trainee education at various levels as well as clinical research and laboratory improvement projects in pursuit of academic excellence.
Hemotherapy - The other aspect of this position is the hemotherapy service, which is an innovative clinical consultative service that serves as a bridge to clinical and laboratory medicine. It is part of a multidisciplinary care team that operates 24/7 and serves as interventional blood banking consultants at the bed side. The primary goal of the hemotherapy service is to mitigate the bleeding risks of critically ill inpatients with cardiovascular disease, including those with advanced cardiovascular devices, those who have undergone recent surgical interventions, and those with inherited and acquired bleeding disorders. Physicians covering the hemotherapy service must be comfortable with direct patient care and are expected to appropriately order and interpret routine and specialized hematology and coagulation assays. Additionally, they will be responsible for the appropriate ordering of blood product transfusions and hemostatic agents.
