The 13th edition of the International Master in Donation and Transplantation of Organs, Tissues and Cells (TPM-University of Barcelona) has finished this June. 26 students from 19 countries took part in this Master. On the other hand, we have also trained 20 participants from 7 countries in the Master in Clinical Research (University of Barcelona), in the specialization of Organ, Tissue and Cell Donation and Transplantation.
The Closing Ceremony of the Master took place the 2nd of June, with the participation of two specials guests: Dr. Francis L. Delmonico (Emeritus Director of Renal Transplantation at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, advisor to the World Health Organization and academician of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and Mrs. Jenny Koo (Transplant coordinator in Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong and former TPM Master student).
Moreover, we showed a short film on OrganDonation “This is your baby” sponsored by The National Agency for Transplant in Bulgaria alongside with the Spanish Embassy in Sofia, as raising social awareness action.
The participants have been very committed and deeply involved in every stage of the donation and transplantation process along the academic course. During the entire training, they were guided by experts coming from the most prestigious centers from around the world. We hope that the new edition of the Master, starting in October 2017, will be as successful as this one! Registration is now open for the 14th edition!
