What’s special about TLJ?

ESOT invites you to the TLJ2018 Programme (Transplantation Learning Journey), held from 6 to 10 November, 2018, in Munich, Germany.

Moving forward from the past two successful editions of the ESOT “Bundled Meetings” (Budapest 2014 and Barcelona 2016) the TLJ2018 will serve as a new platform for speakers and participants to engage in a variety of presentations, dynamic discussions, networking opportunities, to lead a new paradigm in the field of transplantation.

Under the theme of “Transplantation Learning Journey”, a variety of targeted programs, one for each specialty, have been designed to cover the educational needs of all fields in healthcare and research with an affiliation in transplantation. 

TLJ2018 is a series of high-quality educational activities, bundled together in a back-to-back format, combined with the possibility of networking with peers of different specialties. All happening in one place.
