Their primary job is to prepare patients who volunteer to donate tissues and organs by educating them about transplant procedure, risks, and recovery process. Also, they take care of patients who receive organs, offer them pre and post-surgery care and assist them during the entire procedure.

Then further they will have to undergo a specialized training and education program focusing on organ and tissue transplant. And at last, will require taking the certification exam and get certified by the American Board of Transplant Certification.
