ESOT-YPT Observership Program

YPT Committee is dedicated to increasing its involvement in education of junior transplant professional, with particular interest in providing educational opportunities in centres of excellence in the area of transplantation.

We are proud to announce the first “ESOT-YPT Committee Observership Program”, which offers young surgeons (under the age of 40) from around Europe the opportunity to observe transplantation surgery in practice. Our first Observership Program will be available at the Liver Transplantation Unit of Florence Nightingale Hospital, Istanbul - a centre where more than 100 living donor liver transplants are performed every year.

The Observership Program at the Liver Transplantation unit of Florence Nightingale Hospital offers participation to living donor liver transplantation practice, which includes scrubbing privilege to participate both donor and recipient operations. The Observership period is 4 weeks. The application form will be available at ESOT-YPT webpage and the YPT Committee will review all applications. On the Observership Program Application form, please indicate your preferred visit schedule.

We would like to remind you that you may apply for 2015 “Short Stay and Study Grant” of ESOT for this Observership.
