ISHLT is a leading organization providing education for medical professionals involved in heart and lung transplantation. Because of the rapid advances in medicine in general and transplantation medicine specifically, transplant professionals are in need of regular opportunities to update and maintain their knowledge of advances and changes in transplant medicine. These meetings are designed to address this need.
To enable participants to learn about current practices, emerging technologies, and medical advances related to heart and lung transplantation and end-stage heart and lung disease; and to provide a forum for participants to engage in discussion, debate, and examination regarding the efficacy and applicability of these current practices, emerging technologies, and medical advances.
The audience for these programs includes physicians, surgeons, scientists, pharmacists, nurses, transplant coordinators and other allied health and social science professionals engaged in the practice of heart and lung transplantation, the management and treatment of heart and lung transplant recipients, the management and treatment of patients with end-stage heart or lung disease, basic science or clinical research related to these fields, or specialties which cause them to become involved in the treatment of transplant recipients or patients with end stage heart or lung disease.
