    This course was an eye-opener about how all it started and how we should share our life with others and provide them not only a second chance in life but a chance of life again.

    From a non-medico point of view, this course enlightened my knowledge in simple terms and provided me profundity of understanding. MOHAN Foundation’s step to raise awareness about organ donation is really commendable. It was a great experience with the pioneers of organ donation.


    I am a Transplant Coordinator working in a Govt. Hospital in Delhi. I have heard about this course from some of my colleagues. Thereafter, I decided to join and gain the knowledge through this beautiful course. It helped me a lot like sharp a knife and I learnt so many new things. I would like to recommend this course to each and every one who is a part of this noble course.

    Thanks a lot for providing such a beautiful course.

    Mr. Adarsh Patel, Uttar Pradesh

    It was nice learning with MOHAN Foundation. I am working on Heart & Lung transplantation, MOHAN Foundation effectively taught me everything about other organ & tissue transplantation. Specifically grief counseling was something what I was not aware of anything and the course thought me.

    Now looking forward to some on-field experiences of grief counseling.
