AST offers two distinct webinar series for convenient online education catering to a wide audience; both are free to members and available for a fee to non-members.
• Timely Topics in Transplantation (T3) On Demand Webinar Series
• Business of Transplantation Live Monthly Webinar Series (2nd Wednesdays through June 2013)
AST invites you to take part in our regular online journal clubs, starting in March 2013. These online journal clubs will provide a forum for open discussion of relevant papers, and encourage interaction among AST members and non-members alike. Each journal club will be hosted by one of AST's twelve COPs, but transplant professionals from all specialties and areas of interest are invited to attend. There is no charge to participate, but pre-registration is advised to secure your place.
Whether you weren't able to attend one of AST's meetings, or if you just want to review the content you learned onsite, we are pleased to offer speakers' slides synced with audio for all of AST's live meetings.
