Patient Resources

The Johns Hopkins Comprehensive Transplant Center offers many resources to help you prepare for the transplant experience.


Events include Evening Educational Sessions and the Annual Patient Conference. Visit our calendar to see upcoming events.

Transplant Mentor

A transplant mentor serves as an additional informational resource as you go through your transplant experience. This is someone who has gone through the transplant process as a donor or recipient. They can help guide you through the process and describe the experience.
