The Foundation of the ASTS was established in 2002 to provide for additional programs that support the mission and to assure the future of the ASTS. ASTS is active in many arenas including the training of transplant surgeons, the dissemination of clinically relevant scientific information, the important issues of reimbursement and transplantation economics, as well as many other matters which touch our patients each day. ASTS is the most important Society for surgeons serving patients who need or who have had an organ transplant.
