TSANZ SPEC, with support of the council has created a new initiative in designing monthly interactive state-of-the-art educational virtual webinars which will provide a succinct overview of important clinical, translational and practical aspects of the spectrum of organ transplantation and are suitable for all members of the clinical and research community, including medical and surgical advanced trainees in transplantation.
The webinars will also provide an opportunity to interact and submit questions to the speakers and the potential for future access of the recorded talks.
