Today marked the inauguration of the 29th edition of the Curso Superior Internacional en Donación y Trasplante de Órganos y Tejidos at the Barcelona Science Park (PCB). The programme, organised by the Donation & Transplantation Institute (DTI), will be executed until 22 February in Barcelona and Sant Hilari Sacalm, with the participation of forty-nine students from Spain and eleven different Latin American countries.


Martí Manyalich, President of the DTI Foundation; Maria Valentín, representative of the Spanish National Transplant Organisation (ONT); Jaume Tort, Director of the Catalan Transplant Organisation (OCATT); Ramón Adàlia, course director; and PCB director, Maria Terrades participated in the opening act.

The event concluded with the presentation of the robot, “Mr TPM”, as an innovative element to be used by teachers and students alike during the course. The aim of this training module—with the help of robotics—is to speed up the learning process and innovate in order to change the future.

The 29th edition of the “Curso Superior Internacional en Donación y Trasplante de Órganos y Tejidos” to be held in Barcelona and Sant Hilari Sacalm from 19 to 22 February, will bring together forty-nine students from eleven different countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Portugal and Spain. Fourteen of those students are participating in the Master Allianza degree managed by the ONT: a programme in which the DTI collaborates by providing training in the field of Transplant Coordination.

The Donation & Transplantation Institute (DTI) has its headquarters in the Barcelona Science Park, which aims to train health professionals nationally and internationally to achieve better organ and tissue donation and transplantation management worldwide. Through its Transplant Procurement Management (TPM) training programme—which is a world-leader in the training of health professionals in the field of organ and tissue donation for transplantation—the DTI aims to increase the quantity, quality and efficacy of donation and transplantation by training the professionals who are involved in the process. Since 1991, TPM-DTI has trained over 14,000 professionals from 101 different countries.
