Welcome to the Islet Transplantation Course by Thierry Berney and Lorenzo Piemonti
Thierry Berney and Lorenzo Piemonti created this course, with support from expert contributors Antonio Secchi, Daniela Bruttomesso, Francesco De Cobelli, Hanne Scholz, Jim Shaw, Olivier Thaunat, Paolo Monti, Pratik Choudhary and Valeria Sordi. For this course, you should take into account a time investment of approximately six hours to watch and consider the module lectures which comprise the module. After each section, you will then be able to undertake (where available) the accompanying quiz. Each quiz question is arranged in a multiple-choice format. The quizzes and discussions are not mandatory.
In order to qualify for the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) credits, you are expected to complete the EACCME Self-assessment. You will find this assessment under the tab "EACCME Self-Assessment" in each module. After you have made the assessment, you will receive the certificate by email. Although recommended for further educational development, if you do not wish to collect EACCME® credits, please note that none of the quizzes are compulsory. You may freely navigate the course in any order at your leisure. Finally, to accompany some of the lectures and presentations, a selection of author-suggested e-books, congress highlights and publications are also available. We hope you enjoy this course.
This course will provide an opportunity to advance your knowledge on the topic of islet transplantation, from developing foundation knowledge to building on advanced skills. To obtain your credits, you have to complete the EACCME self assessment.
