Current Topics in Histocompatibility and Transplantation is

an annual series of twenty interactive lectures moderated by Dr. Sandra Rosen-Bronson. Dr. Rosen-Bronson is a former President of the American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI) and remains actively involved in the field Transplantation.

This continuing education program reaches scores of individuals through real-time, ninety minute in-depth audio conferences involving organizations and people from around the world. Without ever leaving their workplace, participants can register and listen to the lectures in one of two ways: either LIVE on the day of the conference, or through listening to the a recording of the lecture (RECORDED lectures include slides as a PowerPoint file and audio recording.)


Participants can also earn ABHI CEC for listening to recorded lectures from previous years (to order the lecture from previous years please use order forms.)


This convenient and cost-effective educational tool allows histocompatibility and transplantation professionals to keep current in the field of histocompatibility testing and transplantation.

Our program is approved by the American Board for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics and all participants earn ABHI Continuing Education Credit (CEC) equal to 1.5 contact hours or 0.225 CEC per lecture (equal credit is given for participation in both live and recorded lectures). For 2016 our provider numbers are as follows:
