Designed to meet the needs of the global transplantation community

The challenge of making advances in knowledge when restrictions on in-person meetings remain has motivated us to develop a new event format designed to use the unique characteristics of digital education to meet the needs of our global members.

Here are our goals for TTS Masterclass Series:

  • To meet the different medical education needs and priorities of TTS members around the globe
  • To focus on the real, pressing topics identified by transplant community experts, with specific attention to regional needs in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Oceania, and the Americas
  • To leverage the benefits of online learning and condense the content into impactful, interactive formats featuring shorter, sharply-structured talks
  • To boost opportunities for personalised learning based on individual interests and knowledge gaps

The TTS Masterclass Series have been designed with the needs of our members and transplant colleagues around the world at the core of our plans. We hope you will actively participate and benefit from the learning and interaction with our incredible lineup of speakers. See you online!
