A main focus of IPITA is to promote training in the field of pancreas and islet cell transplantation and it is our hope that this new initiative will advance this goal.
We developed this curriculum in collaboration with investigators and clinicians from around the world with the purpose of providing the community with a comprehensive educational resourse both for trainees, and seasoned professionals in our field seeking to update their practice.
The curriculum is free for IPITA and TTS members through the member portal on ipita.org and tts.org.
Those who are not yet members may signup for soley for the curriculum or sign-up and become a member of IPITA at the same time.
We have priced the Curriculum Trainee Price at $55 USD including 2021/2022 IPITA Membership to make this as attractive as possible to recruit new members.We encourage all our members to share this with all their trainees and colleagues.

Stellenbosch University (SU) has written a very nice press release which can be viewed here:
TTS and WIT are hosting two networking discussion sessions lead by TTS Education Committee Members and WIT Members. Clips from the documentary will be shown and discussed as well as key themes that came out of the movie.
Registrants will have the ability to ask questions and interact with each other. Whether you will be joining for your morning coffee or pre/post dinner drinks, the session will be lively and interactive. Even if you are unable to watch the movie prior to the session, you are encouraged to register and join.
