Clinical and Investigative Training in Transplantation and Cellular Therapy

Blood and Marrow Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (BMT-CT) Fellowship

Message from the Director

At Stanford, the Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (BMT) offers a one-year clinical fellowship focusing on hematopoietic cell transplantation and cellular therapy. The BMT fellowship has a long history of training clinicians who are interested in pursuing a career in the field of hematopoietic cell transplantation. Under the leadership of Dr. Robert Lowsky, the fellowship has evolved into a comprehensive training program that provides opportunitiesto sharpen clinical skills, to understand the biology of transplantation and to be involved in cutting-edge research projects. Since 2007, the program has trained more than 45 physicians with majority of our graduates now working in the field of transplantation and cellular therapy throughout the country. With the close connection we build during their fellowship year, our graduates have now become referral doctors for Stanford patients who return to their home states, and many times collaborators on multi-center clinical trials.
