Comprehensive Trainee Curriculum

Comprehensive Trainee Curriculum

 

Solid organ transplantation is a multidisciplinary field, leading to a diverse community of professionals within the AST. As a result, it is often necessary for trainees to have extensive knowledge of all areas of transplantation—not just their specialty. While clinical training in transplantation exposes trainees to various specialties, additional educational curriculum that encompasses all areas is highly beneficial.

The Comprehensive Trainee Curriculum (CTC) is AST’s latest addition to its member benefits. This feature is an online educational platform that features dozens of webinars on various concentrations of transplantation.
