"The way transplantation is practiced in the US today was developed primarily by AFDT."
John McDonald, MD, Louisiana State University Medical Center

Francis H. Wright, Jr., MD, Methodist Specialty and Transplant Center

"For over 25 years, AFDT has provided education for all transplant disciplines in a setting that encourages the multidisplinary team discussion."
Helen Spicer, RN, Virginia Transplant Center, Henrico Doctors' Hospital
