UC San Diego Health Hemophilia & Thrombosis Treatment Center Fellowship
The University of California San Diego Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center (HTTC) is pleased to announce an opening for its one-year Fellowship. The Fellowship at the Hemophilia & Thrombosis Treatment Center is designed to provide specialized training in hemophilia and other bleeding and thrombotic disorders. Eligible candidates will have successfully completed Internal Medicine Residency and are, ideally but not necessarily, enrolled in or have completed a Hematology/Oncology fellowship.
The objectives of the fellowship are to provide advanced training in the diagnosis and treatment of bleeding and thrombotic disorders including hemophilia, von Willebrand disease, platelet function disorders, rare factor deficiencies, as well as venous and arterial thrombosis. The fellowship provides the opportunity to participate in and develop innovative research ideas in the area of hemostasis and thrombosis.
The HTTC conducts numerous research projects including federally and industry-sponsored basic research, industry-sponsored clinical trials, and HTTC-based projects focusing on cardiovascular heatlh, joint health, and musculoskeletal ultrasound in hemophilia. HTTC-based endeavors of note include a cutting edge CME accredited training course in Musculoskeletal ultrasound and international outreach in global health, specifically at the UCSD partner site in Maputo, Mozambique. The HTTC is part of the American Thrombosis and Hemostasis Network (ATHN) and receives funding from the CDC to participate in its network of HTCs.
There will be ample opportunities to participate in and develop community outreach, research interest and educational programs together with the local hemophilia chapter and patient advocacy groups.
The Fellowship is directly mentored by Dr. Annette von Drygalski, the HTTC Medical Director, and is supported by an exceptional multi-disciplinary team dedicated to the care of patients with bleeding and thrombotic disorders, local hemophilia chapter, and patient advocacy groups.
