The Division of Transplantation (called onwards in the document as Division) was formed in 2007. It was the product of the work from May 2005 to February 2007 of the Transplant Working Group of the Section of Surgery of the UEMS and the European Board of Surgery (EBS).
The main objective of the Division is to guarantee the best standard of care in organ transplantation in Europe by ensuring that training in transplantation medicine and surgery is maintained at the highest level.
The Division operates in close collaboration with the European Society of Organ Transplantation (ESOT). The Division of Transplantation is a non-profit organisation.
