Education and training

UNOS provides educational resources that help patients, family members, friends, potential donors and medical professionals understand organ donation and transplantation.

  • Transplant Living website – No matter where you are in the transplant experience, Transplant Living can help you be prepared with helpful information, resources and tools.
  • Patient brochures – Find free information designed to help patients understand the organ transplant process. You can also request custom patient information packets here.
  • Frequently asked questions – Learn details about about how organ donation and transplantation work.

Professional education

In addition to providing helpful information to patients, UNOS is committed to providing resources to assist transplant professionals. Our broad range of educational services will help you navigate through the continuous changes.
