Pavan K. Bendapudi
At the time of his application, Dr. Pavan Bendapudi was finishing his third year of adult hematology/oncology training at the combined Dana Farber Cancer Institute- Massachusetts General Hospital (DFCI-MGH) fellowship program. After finishing his medical degree at Stanford University, he did his residency in internal medicine at MGH, where he developed a strong interest in bleeding and clotting disorders. This led him to complete an additional fellowship in blood banking and transfusion medicine through the Harvard Combined Transfusion Medicine Program, where he was the first graduate of his residency program to have pursued additional training in this area.
As a hematology fellow, Dr. Bendapudi provided care to patients at the hemostasis clinic at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and pursued additional research opportunities in the labs of Dr. Robert Flaumenhaft and Dr. Bruce Furie. Dr. Bendapudi received a Mentored Research Award from the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Research Society (HTRS) and will join the faculty at Massachusetts General Hospital as an instructor with an appointment in the Division of Hematology. While a NHF-Baxalta Clinical Fellow, Dr. Bendapudi will participate in the Comprehensive Hemophilia Clinic at Children’s Hospital Boston, attending all clinical sessions and training under the mentorship of Dr. Ellis Neufeld. Dr. Bendapudi will continue expanding his training, along with a focus on the transition from pediatric to adult hemophilia care.
