Effective immediately, all liver transplant programs must now designate and submit the name of a director of liver transplant anesthesia. Read the new bylaws requiring this submission (UNOS Bylaws, Appendix B, Attachment I, Section XIII, starting on page 42).
UNOS is currently sending liver transplant program administrators and both the designated primary surgeon and primary physician an email request with instructions on how to submit this information. Each liver transplant program must submit the name of a director of liver transplant anesthesia even if you already identified one in your liver transplant program application. You need to include the qualifications as detailed on the Liver Transplant Anesthesia Director Survey form that was included with the email.
If you do not receive the email request with the Liver Transplant Anesthesia Director Survey form by March, contact Dave Kappus at 804-782-4763.
