  • Residents complete their training at three major sites in Winnipeg:

    • Health Science Centre
    • St. Boniface Hospital
    • Canadian Blood Services

    All three teaching sites are accredited by top accreditation bodies: both Health Science Centre and St. Boniface Hospital  are accredited by College of American Pathologists (CAP), while Canadian Blood Services  is accredited by both CAP and American Association of Blood Banks (AABB).

    Both Health Science Centre and St. Boniface Hospital offer a wide variety of common and rare entities that a hematological pathology resident needs to be exposed to in their training. This includes bone marrow aspirates and biopsies, peripheral blood films, lymph nodes, hemoglobin studies, immunopathology (including flow cytometry and autoimmune testing), hematological molecular diagnostics, as well as transfusion medicine and hemostasis.

    Located across the street from Health Science Centre, Canadian Blood Services provides an extensive array of transfusion medicine laboratory testing for most hospitals across the province, including the large and fast-paced blood banks at Health Science Centre and St. Boniface Hospital.
