Membership and Professional Standards Committee

The Membership and Professional Standards Committee (MPSC) is charged with insuring that OPTN/UNOS member clinical transplant centers, independent organ procurement agencies, independent tissue typing laboratories, and non-institutional members meet and remain in compliance with OPTN/UNOS Criteria for Institutional Membership.

To accomplish this, the MPSC:

  • Develops and recommends membership criteria for each class of membership to the Board of Directors.
  • Recommends additions and revisions to membership criteria as needed.
  • Reviews each membership application for Institutional Membership and adopts recommendations for Board action.
  • Monitors member compliance with OPTN requirements.
  • Reviews transplant program performance including outcomes and activity levels.
  • Reviews reported policy violations and makes recommendations to the Board.
