The transplant community consistently rates UNOS’ Transplant Management Forum as one of the best conferences in the industry. Evaluation results from this year’s forum in Orlando on April 25-27 show it is still a worthwhile investment in your professional development.
“Outstanding program all around!”
“One of the most relevant and well developed conferences I have been to.”
“Continues to be the most worthwhile conference to attend annually.”
With two and a half days of plenary and break-out sessions, there was something for all of the 564 attendees to choose from. These sessions drew some of the largest crowds:
- Plenary session, where four non-directed donors shared their stories
- The opioid epidemic and its impact on deceased donor transplants
- Stuff happens! What matters is how you respond (attendees learned what kind of “stuff” had happened in the last year and what the MPSC expects you to do if it happens to you).
Interested in speaking or exhibiting at next year’s conference?
If you are interested in giving a talk for a plenary or concurrent session at next year’s forum in Austin, you have until August 18 to submit your idea. Get more information about submitting abstracts.
