About the event
Transplant administrators from across the country attend the UNOS Transplant Management Forum each year for its educational sessions and networking opportunities. While many of the sessions are geared to transplant administrators, the forum is also an excellent opportunity for clinical and financial coordinators, social workers, OPO executive directors, physicians and surgeons, to enhance their understanding of how a program operates.
Sessions help to increase collaboration between transplant hospitals and OPOs, and to expand transplant professionals’ knowledge of operations, finances, strategies, and more.
Thank you to our 2024 sponsors
We gratefully acknowledge our 2024 sponsors for their support.
