2021 Kidney & Liver Transplant Financial Bootcamp

The Financial Bootcamp is divided into three units: The Nuts and Bolts of Transplant Finance, Putting Knowledge into Action, and Financial Planning in 2021 and Beyond. Each unit includes both liver and kidney topics including understanding transplant finance, contracting, financial impacts of living donation, staffing models, budgeting, effects of COVID-19 on transplant centers, regulatory updates, and more. Each unit was recorded as video and posted on the ASTS Academic Universe. Live Q&A sessions for each unit were held one week after each unit's release. They occurred on March 5th, 12th, and 19th. The recording of each live Q&A session is available within each unit.
