Event description
Interactive two day event for UK Transplant Surgery Trainees, include hands on sessions on organ benchwork and vascular anastomosis.

About this event

Join us in Newcastle for our exciting two day transplant education event. Thursday 28th will take place in the Institute of Transplantation with exciting talks from experts in the field, as well as small group interactive sessions, which will focus on the transplant donor. This will include sessions on organ retrieval, accepting organs from deceased donors, assessing live donors and donor nephrectomy.

Friday 29th will be in the Newcastle Surgical Training Centre and will be a day of hands-on practical experience. We will cover organ benching, vascular anastomosis, dealing with retrieval injuries and vascular reconstruction for aberrant anatomy. This session will end with a machine perfusion masterclass, where you will have the opportunity to perfuse your benched organs on a VitaSmart machine.

Current confirmed faculty include BTS President Lisa Burnapp, Professor Manas, Professor Dark, Mr Aimen Amer and Mr Shahid Farid.

The event is free, and accommodation plus a delegate and faculty gala dinner on 28th October will be included. A £150 deposit will be refunded on attendance of both days and completion of event feedback. We are running the event face-to-face, and due to the large practical component the course will not be available virtually. The practical session will use predominantly pig tissue, and possibly some cadaveric human tissue.

If you are not currently a Herrick member, and would like to attend, you must first sign up to be a member on our website: www.herricksociety.org.uk

A big thank you to our event sponsors Corza Medical and Bridge to Life.
