Transplant Resources for Medical Students and Surgical Residents


Behind the Knife and American Society of Transplant Surgeons Podcast Series 


The ASTS and Behind the Knife Podcast collaborated to develop a podcast series which features ASTS members. The topics include pre-transplant evaluation, transplant call, post operative complications, long-term outcomes, immunosuppression, donation, and more!


Transplant Videos

Videos created by Dr. Douglas Cassidy, a general surgery resident and Surgical Education and Simulation Research Fellows at Massachusetts General Hospital. One of his current research interests is curriculum improvement, including the development of the SurgEdVidz didactic video series which can be found on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/c/surgedvidz.


Resident Curriculum 

The Resident Curriculum is designed specifically for Surgery Residents who are doing a rotation in transplant surgery. The multimedia presentations located within the site will allow residents to learn the necessary didactic information to better understand transplant surgery rotations and consider transplantation as a future career.
