Country:
Valencia, Spain
Description & Objectives:

HESPERIS is a comprehensive course on organ transplantation, ideally suited for physicians, surgeons, and scientists entering the field of transplantation.

The 2024 edition of the HESPERIS Course consists of a three-day in-person programme which includes lectures on both foundational and hot topics in transplantation, break-out sessions, group discussions, and interactive case study presentations. In this dynamic and interactive live environment, participants will have the chance to gain first-hand knowledge from some of the most experienced professionals in the transplant field.

The faculty and topics of the HESPERIS Course 2024 are diverse. Sessions are focused on issues in transplant immunology, organ donation and preservation, recipient evaluation and management, regenerative medicine, and person-centred care. The HESPERIS Course 2024 also includes new learning modules on post-transplant infectious disease.

The HESPERIS Course also offers a wide range of online preparatory materials and lectures that participants are strongly encouraged to take advantage of.

The European Board of Transplant Medicine of the Division of Transplantation of the UEMS recommends the HESPERIS Course as preparatory course for the Exam on Transplant Medicine.

To promote active engagement and to stimulate close interaction among attendees and educators, participation in this course is limited to 45 attendees.

Requirements and award:

To enhance interaction and participation, learners will be invited to submit clinical cases for discussion on the main topics of the course, and to present them onsite. The best one will be awarded with the “Paolo Muiesan Award for the Best Case Study Presentation” which consists in a free ESOT membership and free registration for the ESOT Congress 2025 (London, 29 June – 2 July).

In preparation for the in-person portion of the course:

Participants are strongly encouraged to review the online materials to prepare for the in-person portion of the course and to select the topics they wish to delve into depending on their individual needs and level of expertise.

While completion of the online programme and activities is not required, these materials cover important topics that may not be included in the in-person programme of the course, and therefore are strongly recommended and a key component of the educational opportunity offered by the HESPERIS Course.
