Advanced Renal Transplantation - Interactive Teaching Series

renal course

We are very pleased to announce the first of the interactive, online, webinar, ‘virtual classroom’ teaching modules from the Education Committee of The Transplantation Society.

This program is designed as an advanced curriculum in Renal Transplantation to be made available to members of TTS world wide free of charge. This curriculum will be administered through online webinars from June 2015 at monthly intervals. Experts on the key topics in the field of transplantation will present the interactive webinars. The courses will be designed incorporating the new learning and teaching techniques as described in the TTS Distinguished Educator course. The target audience for this series is doctors and trainees, who have a keen interest in advancing their knowledge in renal transplantation. This will enable them to practice the state-of-the--art medicine anywhere in the world. This series will be CME accredited and those who complete the entire series will be awarded the TTS Certificate in Advanced Renal Transplantation.
