Education is a key mandate of the Institute. The Alberta Transplant Institute aims to be internationally recognized as a place where young scientists, clinicians, and surgeons can come to train in all areas of transplantation care and research.
We have strong educators in our transplant program and a rich history of clinical and research training upon which to build even further.
Here is a snapshot of educational activities:
The weekly ATI seminar series: These are high-quality research and clinical rounds with local and international speakers held Wednesdays from noon - 1:00pm in Classroom D WMC. (Sept - June)
The ATI Fellows lecture series: These lectures highlight common themes in transplantation and are a key aspect for training fellows in the program. Lectures are held on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:30pm in Classroom B WMC (Sept - June). For more information contact Caitlyn Killips
Clinical fellowships: In conjunction with AHS, the Institute offers a number of clinical training fellowship in both surgical and medical specialities in all areas related to Transplantation
- Research fellowships: The institute periodically offers research fellowship funding to trainees whose supervisors are members.
