NATCO CCTC Review Course

UT Southwestern was happy to host representatives from NATCO for NATCO’s first Regional CCTC review course held at Clements University Hospital March 3rd and 4th. Over 60 transplant coordinators were in attendance from all over the United States and even one from Canada! The conference was a comprehensive review of the content needed to pass the CCTC certification exam. Good luck to all of the local coordinators that will be taking the certification exam soon!
