UEMS – ESOT Collaboration 

The European Society of Organ Transplantation grants two Transplant Fellowships every year “in order to advance the clinical and academic knowledge and skills of senior European transplant trainees or junior transplant specialists by working in another European institution for a period of one year, attending a sound and well-structured clinical and academic program”.

As mentioned on the website of ESOT, should the hosting institution not be UEMS-ESOT accredited, “the Head of the hosting institution needs to produce a  report as to how the training program and overall clinical and academic work of the his/ her Department compare to the UEMS-ESOT training requirements for the specific discipline (transplantation surgery, medicine, coordination and immunology) for which the applicant is applying for.”
