Donor Education

Educational Videos for Living Donors and Transplant Candidates

The American Society of Transplant Surgeons (ASTS) has created three 30 minute educational videos for potential kidney or liver donors and recipients. The videos feature either an actual recipient or donor who shares their experience for those considering donation or transplantation as treatment for kidney or liver disease as well as what to expect from each member of the transplant team.
