Indiana Blood Center hosts local, national and international experts in a variety of fields such as laboratory management, transfusion medicine, immunohematology, hemostasis and blood banking.

Indiana Blood Center's Laboratory Services, Training & Development and Quality departments regularly host American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), America's Blood Centers (ABC) and American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) audio conferences.

Indiana Blood Center's Transfusion Medicine Education Program began with the development of Blood Bank Crash Courses in 2001. The Specialist in Blood Banking program began in 2005. In 2015, a Wet Workshop was added.

Wet Workshop - The purpose of this one-day workshop is to provide participants with a systematic approach to evaluating routine ABO typing mismatches and resolving discrepancies. Included will be a discussion of atypical situations in which problems might be encountered, as well as appropriate practices for ABO problem resolution. The workshop is intended for the medical technologist/laboratory scientist who possesses a basic understanding of blood banking techniques. Click here for more information.

Specialist in Blood Banking program - The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and AABB have accredited Indiana Blood Center's SBB program for students from Indiana and around the nation. The 12-month program combines online modules with clinical/administrative and technical rotations and transfusion medicine professional development. The program leads to the certificate of completion from Indiana Blood Center that qualifies the student to take the ASCP SBB certification exam.
