Osler Blood Bank Lecture 2013

If you are thinking of attending the Osler Institute Pathology Review Course and are wondering whether or not I will be giving the blood bank lectures, this page will give you a bit of information about my schedule for 2013.

The Osler Institute has announced the schedule for their first two Pathology Review courses in 2013. As of now, I plan to be present to deliver the blood bank review lectures at both the late February/early March course in Los Angeles as well as the April course in Chicago.

If you are interested, you can download the notes from the 2012 course (Los Angeles, March 2012).

Please believe me when I tell you that I'm not arrogant enough to believe that any of you are sitting at home saying, "If that Chaffin guy ain't talking, I ain't going!", but I just wanted to give you fair warning of when I will and won't be at the individual courses, in case you care! Check back here for updates. Thank you for your understanding.
