About Allied Health Professionals

As a member of the IIRTA, you have access to international multidisciplinary experts in intestine transplantation. The networking opportunities within IIRTA are invaluable in discussing specific intestine transplant-related issues with others who have similar experiences and expertise. The biennial symposium is unlike any other transplant educational event, focusing specifically on all dimensions of intestinal transplant, as well as therapies and treatment for intestinal failure. Becoming a member of IIRTA will enhance your practice by becoming part of an international transplant team to exchange knowledge, improve your clinical practice, develop and participate in educational opportunitiesand to engage in research.
