Southern California Community Education
The weekly Blood Transfusion Medicine lecture series was discontinued at the end of November 2018. However, the Southern California Region intends to periodically offer Transfusion Medicine Seminars. A variety of topics are presented including current issues in Transfusion Medicine. Continuing education credit is offered.
The Specialist in Blood Bank Technology and Transfusion Medicine (SBB) Program that we have offered since 2006 is transitioning to a national program for the American Red Cross and students are not currently being admitted at the Pomona site. The SBB program is graduate level education for clinical/medical laboratory scientists certified by the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) and who have some transfusion service experience. Graduates of SBB programs are qualified to take the ASCP certification SBB examination.
