2nd Workshop for Young Professionals in Transplantation on Living Organ Donation

2020-08-27 / 2020-08-29

Gubbio, Italy

On June 18th 2020, there will be a unique opportunity for young transplanters to participate at the 2nd Workshop on Living Donation preceding the 10th International Living Donor Abdominal Organ Transplant Conference to be held on 18-20 June 2020 in Gubbio, Italy, that is organised by Enrico Benedetti and Giuliano Testa.
The concept of the YPT Workshop is to focus on the younger generation and let it discuss a variety of aspects/exchange of ideas as regards living organ donation in the presence of senior faculty from Europe and the USA. The Workshop is aimed at young transplant surgeons, transplant nurses, physicians, and allied health care professionals. We have space for 30 participants aged <40 years. Attached is a preliminary version of the Workshop programme.
The first edition of this YPT Workshop was held in 2018 in Matera, Italy and turned out to be a great success! A dynamic group of next generation leaders in living donation attended, learning in an interactive and stimulating environment.
Thirty participants will be selected based on their motivation letter and brief CV and supported by a Travel Grant of €500 to be reimbursed only after the candidate has presented him/herself on-site. We have arranged nice and affordable accommodation in Hotel San Marco in the centre of Gubbio at a special rate of € 50, 60 and 80 per night per room. Participants will have free access to the YPT Workshop, an afternoon workshop on small bowel transplantation, and to the entire 10th International Living Donor Abdominal Organ Transplant Conference. All registration fees have been waived and participants are invited to the traditional dinner but have to pay that themselves.
We are looking forward to receiving many applications! Kindly apply with a short motivation letter (max 1 A4) and short CV (max 2 A4) highlighting your interest and activities in the field of donation and transplantation by sending an email to: rutger.ploeg@nds.ox.ac.uk with subject "LD Workshop application" . We will handle registrations on a first come, first serve basis. Deadline for applications is 15th March 2020.
Looking forward to see many participants in Gubbio!
