Welcome Message


Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of The Korean Society for Transplantation and the Korea Organ Donation Agency, we would like to invite you to Seoul, Korea for the 13th Congress of the International Society for Organ Donation and Procurement.

This scientific and educational Congress promises to offer a cutting edge program related to organ and tissue donation and procurement, which will stimulate lively discussion and debate. We also believe that it will be a milestone in establishing a sound national organ and tissue donation system in many Asian and developing countries.

This Congress is aimed not only at transplant surgeons, physicians, and nurses but will also cater to intensive care doctors and nurses, as well as ethicists and other related healthcare professionals.

October is the best time of year to visit Korea and we believe that you will experience the best our country has to offer. Seoul has been the capital city for more than 500 years with many old palaces and ancient customs, which are balanced with modern technology. You will get to know a dynamic Korea and enjoy your stay while creating lasting memories.
We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Seoul in October 2015.
