Transplant center coordinator training

Get the tools you need to fully use the support available to you through your center’s partnership with the NMDP. By participating in the Transplant Center Coordinator Training, you’ll learn our systems and services so you can provide the best support available to your patients and donors. 

Transplant Center Coordinator Training is designed for transplant center coordinators who are new to their role or for those who have not taken the course in several years and would like to familiarize themselves with changes to our systems and services. 

While designed for transplant center coordinators, anyone at a NMDP Network affiliated transplant center may sign up for the training. Please note, this training is not applicable to those who do not have access to MatchSource®. If you are searching for education opportunities, check to what WMDA has to offer.
