Comprehensive Trainee Curriculum (CTC)
Solid organ transplantation is a multidisciplinary field, leading to a diverse community of professionals within the AST. As a result, it is often necessary for trainees to have extensive knowledge of all areas of transplantation—not just their specialty. While clinical training in transplantation exposes trainees to various specialties, an additional educational curriculum that encompasses all areas is highly beneficial.
The Comprehensive Trainee Curriculum (CTC) is a great way to expand your transplant knowledge. This course is an online educational platform that features dozens of webinars on various concentrations of transplantation. For those interested in a focused learning experience, CTC can also be viewed via a series of 12 recommended learning tracks have been included in the "Course Appendix."
CTC now includes a new "All Organs" video by Dr. Maryl Johnson, Professor of Medicine at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, on "OPTN: Legal and Regulatory Framework and How OPTN Policy Development Works" (added March 2021)! All new and updated CTC content is currently provided for free to past purchasers and is included as part of the overall course for new purchasers.
