The 29th edition of the “Curso Superior Internacional en Donación y Trasplante de Órganos y Tejidos” took place in February 19th to 22nd in Barcelona and Sant Hilari Sacalm.
The course gathered forty-nine participants representing 11 different countries, such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Peru, Portugal and Spain. 14 of them are participating in the “Master Alianza” managed by the ONT (National Transplant Organization), which includes our course as part of its program.
The opening ceremony was held at “Parc Cientific de Barcelona (PCB)” with representatives from the Organización Nacional de Trasplantes (ONT), Organització Catalana de Trasplantaments (OCATT) and PCB.
An innovative element to be highlighted is the collaboration of the social robot “Pepper”, who accompanied the teachers and students during the course in order to favour their learning process.
The evaluation results have been very positive, with an overall average of 4.82 over 5. Our congratulations to all the faculty and staff members who have made the course another success!
