The DICG Course on Ethical Issues in Transplantation and The Declaration of Istanbul

In April, 2021 the DICG launched a course on Organ Trafficking and Transplant Tourism. The course was designed to give a complete overview of the DOI. There are three main modules in the curriculum. History of the DOI, 2018 Edition of the DOI and Ethical Issues Related to the DOI. There is also a series of regional updates. The course is free and open to all participants who want to learn about ethics in transplantation, the DOI and the DICG. We plan to update the course with recordings in 2022.
