Terms of Service

IMPORTANT: These Terms of Service constitute a legally binding agreement between you and TransplantProfessionals.com, LLC, also doing business as the United Network for the Recruitment of Transplantation Professionals (UNRTP). Please read this document carefully. If you wish to receive the services provided by the UNRTP (the "Services"), you must agree to these Terms of Service without modification by you. These Terms of Service are subject to change by the UNRTP, and any such changes will become effective fourteen days after you receive notice from the UNRTP at the email address you provide when registering for the Services.

Services Provided

The UNRTP consists of a Web site (www.TransplantProfessionals.com) and corresponding consultancy (TransplantProfessionals.com, LLC) for purposes of recruiting and placing transplantation professionals worldwide. It facilitates and enhances employment-related processes through a portfolio of synergistic services, including the following:

  1. At no charge, employers can independently post positions for which they are actively recruiting staff members.
  2. Potential candidates can search the available position postings, and directly reply to potential employers on their own behalf, for which there are no UNRTP fees.
  3. If appropriate, and by contractual arrangement for an additional fee, the UNRTP may actively participate in the recruitment and placement process by serving as an intermediary or agent between employers and candidates.
  4. As a subsidiary activity, the UNRTP provides services under the name Priority Referral Program, which includes the maintenance of a confidential database of professionals who can be classified as follows: (a) individuals who are actively seeking positions and (b) individuals not actively seeking positions but, who, under appropriate circumstances, may consider a more favorable position with another employer.
  5. Lastly, the UNRTP offers a full-range of custom-tailored consulting services to hospitals, transplant centers, organ and tissue procurement organizations, as well as the transplant industry, including pharmaceutical firms and device manufacturers.
