Hi everyone, I have biomedical engineering background, I live in Saudi Arabia and I think to study blood banking in US.

What's your recommendation? Which institute/university do you recommend?

Thanks for your help.

To work in a blood bank in a clinical setting in the US, you will need a degree as a Medical Laboratory Scientist (4 year) or as a Medical Laboratory Technician (2 year).  The University of Kansas has a nice summary of what that means here:

Many colleges and universities offer Medical Technology programs.  Here is one source:

Medical Scientists are in short supply here in the US, and will be for some years to come!  It's a good area to go into if you are interested in this stuff!
