Training & Education

As well as a place where patients are offered the highest standards of care, the Institute also provides a focus for training the next generation of transplant surgeons.

Newcastle Hospitals have a long and impressive history of innovation in surgery and transplantation, and the Institute aims to carry on this tradition by bringing together world-renowned experts in their field.

We offer training and education programmes, from introductions to transplantation, to the latest surgical techniques.

We run short courses on a wide range of issues, as well as more in-depth study.

We also work closely with Newcastle University to offer a Postgraduate Certificate in Transplantation.

Transplant TV

The internet offers medical professionals almost endless opportunities to learn more about their field of expertise, and to share their knowledge with others.

Transplant TV is an innovative online channel which has been set up by surgeons to help as an education tool for other medical professionals who want to find out more about a range of subjects.

The channel aims to enable medical professionals from across the world to share their own films with the channel, increasing the depth and breadth of programmes available.
