  • 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.
