In the field of transplantation and donation, it is critical to understand the mechanics behind the policy, data and processes. The UNOS team prepared a targeted and flawlessly managed program. Our participants left with a stronger understanding of transplantation data and policy and the overall organ donation process.

UNOS Custom Primer
Customize a conference virtually or at UNOS headquarters. Your staff will learn about policy development, compliance, organ allocation and patient safety. You can even get personalized training in UNetSM and analytical tools. CEPTCs offered.
We requested training for two of our emerging clinical leader groups to help them learn from the experts about the critical components of patient safety and policy compliance. The on-site visit also gave our staff a chance to tour the Organ Center and National Donor Memorial, and meet the UNOS staff we all depend on 24/7 to help us serve our mission. UNOS created a customized program focused on our specific training needs – definitely worth the investment.
