Education Committee Update: Starting Off in Transplantation

The Transplantation Society, in conjunction with the WHO and the South African Transplantation Society, hosted a workshop last year for people starting off in the field of transplantation. The TTS Education Committee put together a series of webinars with these topics in order to bring this workshop out to the world. We hope that everybody who attends these webinars will find them enjoyable, be able to start their own programs, and will be able to engage with some of these speakers via e-mail and with regular contact in the future to help them start programs and to build a brighter future.
