Education Development

A key component of BC Transplant's mandate is to support knowledge-development through research and teaching.

There are various transplant-related education opportunities throughout the year available to both BC Transplant staff and other health care professionals who want to learn more about organ donation and transplantation.

BCT Education Days

Every year, BC Transplant hosts an educational conference for healthcare professionals around the province who work in organ donation and transplantation.
