    I am very grateful to MOHAN Foundation for allowing me to enroll in the course even though I was late in applying for it. I have gained so much from attending the lectures and associated activities. Overall course content was comprehensive and engaging.

    "Outstanding course, very well appreciated.

    The level of clinical details covered in the course may be very high for transplant coordinators who may not have any medical background. So that may be moderated accordingly."
