The 9th International Living Donor Abdominal Conference

ESOT


Venue: Matera, Italy
Date: 30 August – 1 September 2018

FINAL CALL – Do Not Miss Out!

.

The 9th International Living Donor Abdominal Conference is being held in Matera, Italy between August 30th and September 1st 2018.

This is an excellent meeting addressing all aspects of both living kidney and liver donation. Topics such as donor and recipient selection, operative techniques and organ preservation are all extensively discussed at a very high level.

In order to encourage participation by the next generation in transplantation, a dedicated and interactive workshop for the Young Professionals in Transplantation is being organised to coincide with this meeting. This will incorporate interesting cases and issues pertinent to training, such as operative techniques and how to deal with unexpected events. This workshop will be organised by the YPT and Education Committees with support from prestigious senior faculty who are attending the main meeting.

Thanks to generous support, bursaries for 20 YPTs have been made available to fund the full cost of attending the workshop, the conference, 3 nights accommodation and catering. If accepted, the applicant will simply have to pay for their air travel to and from Bari, Italy and  transfer to Matera (estimated to be approximately €250).

There are 20 YPT spaces available. Do not miss this opportunity and if you apply, please send an email to hmaple@nhs.net with your speciality and level of training, the country that you work in and a brief statement explaining why you would like to apply.

We would like representatives from across Europe and from across all disciplines within transplantation. Please find the workshop and conference programmes attached.

The deadline for applications is Saturday 30th June 2018.

For any further information please contact office@esot.org.
