There has been a rapid increase in organ donation rates in all parts of the country. Safe organ retrieval is the cornerstone of successful organ transplant programs. There is a pressing need to train surgeons in the technique of deceased donor organ recovery, but this training is not part of any surgical curriculum at the present time. India does not lack skilled surgeons. Targeted training of identified surgeons to develop specific skill sets can be achieved with short and intense training courses with the appropriate curriculum.
The National Organ retrieval course has been conducted for the past three years in partnership with NOTTO, ISOT, MOHAN Foundation and surgeons from Oxford University, and has been designed in collaboration with international leaders in organ transplantation to train aspiring transplant surgeons the tips and techniques for a safe organ recovery. This course has trained 115 Indian surgeons in this technique, of whom half are from the public sector. This course has won the BMJ award for excellence in Medical Education 2017 for its high impact teaching.
The 4th such course will be conducted on May 4-5 at MS Ramaiah Advanced Learning Center. Applications are invited for surgeons for this course. Costs of Registration and one day stay will be Rupees 30,000 only.
