2018 BC Transplant Education Days

A two-day conference for health care professionals working in transplant and organ donation.

The BCT Education Day organizing committee has designed a two-day education event with the theme of the Journey from Donation to Transplant. The first day will focus on donation-related topics, while the second day will focus on transplantation.

This conference is open to our colleagues in pre and post-transplant clinics, pharmacies, critical care staff, OR staff, and donation and transplant partner organizations. 

The event is approved by UBC CPD Accreditation and CME credits will be available to attendees.
