About the Donation & Transplant Institute
The moving story of Jamie Fulcher and Cole Ingersoll and their experience with the doctors that work with the Donation & Transplant Institute (DTI) was featured last year in the Barcelona Metropolitan magazine:
"What happened to Jamie and Cole seems like it came straight out of a movie: the man who stole her heart and then gave her his kidney. But in reality, the medical care and actual donation and transplantation process, is a very complex system—one that’s rich in rewards for patients, not for private companies. It’s the result of more than 25 years of hard work spearheaded by Spain’s Transplant Procurement Management (TPM), which was founded in 1991 and merged into the Donation Transplant Institute (DTI) in 2010.
The development of DTI has helped transplantation specialists like Dr. Torregrosa share these successful methods worldwide as well as develop systems that can adapt to the unique circumstances of each country, many of which are ill-equipped and under-served to begin with. The organization hosts workshops abroad to help train local doctors and medical professionals to become transplantation coordinators, as well as offers courses here in Spain.
Since its inception, DTI has trained more than 14,000 people in organ donation and tissue banking, benefiting more than 100 countries and saving more than 2,450 lives."
