Transplant Surgery overview

The Section advises the College on matters relating to transplant surgery, education and training, post-fellowship training and surgical standards and practice through the Board of Surgical Education and Training, the Post-Fellowship Training Committee and the Professional Standards Committee.

The Transplant Surgery Section works to participate in workforce assessments to ensure the workforce for Transplant Surgery in Australia and new Zealand is adequate.

The body also seeks to promote professional and community awareness and acceptance of organ and tissue donation for transplantation as well as promote research in the basic and clinical sciences related to transplantation.


Scientific and education programs are run at the Annual Scientific Congress (ASC).
