The Education and Career Development Platform provides continuing education opportunities, training, and resources to meet the diverse education and career development needs of our trainee community. The Platform focuses on providing trainees with a broad overview of knowledge and issues related to the practice of donating and transplantation, while providing them with tools on how to be better communicators, managers, scholars, and professionals. Trainees are provided with the opportunity to join national and international CDTRP initiatives, network with each other and experts in numerous disciplines, and present their work to a national audience.
