Education Committee Update

The Education Committee is putting together a series of webinars for new transplant centres who are starting off in the field or who are interested in expanding their current transplant programmes.

The series will comprise of a weekly online webinar, which will have a speaker and a moderator. After the webinar there will be time for delegates to ask or type questions. This is a good way to get immediate discussion and interest from the audience.

However, if you are unable to join the webinar at the scheduled time, the webinar will also be downloadable from the TTS website.

We hope that many of the people starting off in the field of transplantation will be interested in this programme.

The finalized programme with scheduled times will be circulated to TTS members soon.

The TTS Education Academy completed presenting the distinguished educator certificate webinar series in January 2014 and those who completed the program were award the TTS Distinguished Educator Certificate. However, it is not too late to join the program and qualify for the Certificate by listening to the archived recordings of these webinars freely available for all TTS members on the TTS website (www.tts.org/academy). The Education Committee also conducted an online anonymous survey of the membership on the perception of their competency as educators, need for such courses and reasons for non-attendance. The results are currently being analyzed and will be published on the TTS website.
