Essential Organ Donation Education for Healthcare Professionals

The Alliance Organ Donation Exploratory Seminar is an 8-hour interactive course, developed and delivered by field experts, to broadly examine the comprehensive donation process for the multidisciplinary healthcare team – especially early-career critical care providers, residents, fellows, nurses, respiratory therapists, advanced clinicians and early-career OPO professionals.

Over the course of two half-days, this course introduces the clinical, legal and administrative considerations of organ donation, synergistic healthcare partnerships and patient family dynamics. It’s an ideal educational opportunity for clinicians and frontline healthcare team members, creating shared understanding of the complex and interconnected logistics of organ donation and bolstering effective practices in hospitals where donation occurs.

Course Details


Jose Fugaro

“Few moments in healthcare make such a significant impact as organ donation. Ironically, training in this process is woefully lacking in medical education at all levels. This course places all of that information in one digestible location.”

JOSEPH FUGARO, MD, FCCP – Critical Care Intensivist, Saint Francis Healthcare


Sandy Kirchner

“Traditional training for clinical professionals and residents provides little to no preparation on donor management or how to have tough conversations with family members. This course can benefit providers who are new to managing donor patients and refresh even those who are most comfortable with it.”

SANDY KIRCHNER, MSN, APRN – Nurse Practitioner, Trauma; Bryan Health
