ASTS will host a second annual Kidney Transplant Financial Bootcamp in 2019 and co-locate the course with the inaugural Liver Transplant Financial Bootcamp to enable attendees to either attend both bootcamps, or choose to only attend one.

The ASTS Financial Bootcamps were designed by in response to a recurring request from attendees of the popular ASTS Leadership Development Program (LDP). Many LDP attendees requested a deep dive into the financial aspects of a managing successful kidney and liver transplant programs. ASTS looks forward to welcoming both past LDP attendees and attendees new to ASTS events to this exciting program.

The bootcamps will be located at the Loews Chicago O'Hare Hotel, located less than a 10 minute drive from O'Hare airport. The Liver Transplant Financial Bootcamp (LTFB) will take place on Thursday, September 19, 2019 and the Kidney Transplant Financial Bootcamp (KTFB) will take place on Friday, September 20, 2019. Both bootcamps will begin in the morning and conclude in the late afternoon. Attendees should plan to fly in the night before the start of the bootcamp(s) they wish to attend.
