Continuing Education Programs

United Blood Services provides both physician and staff education programs. Knowing our transfusion service customers have to do more with less, we have placed increased importance on providing convenient access to high-quality continuing education programs that teach blood banking, professional development and patient blood management skills.

Educational offerings for our customers include:

Most programs are P.A.C.E.® accredited. Continuing medical education (CME) credits are available for select webinars, which may include topics in our Optimum Tx® patient blood management educational series. Certificates of participation are available for all accredited and non-accredited programs.
