Affiliate Events

ATC understands the value of having a large number of specialists in one place and we offer the opportunity for universities, government agencies, non-profit and corporate/industry groups to organize and independently plan non-educational events over the course of the American Transplant Congress.  There is a non-refundable administrative fee for each approved application.

All affiliate events must be approved by ATC and approval will be based on the regulations outlined below and listed here.
