Purpose: on the basis of the comparative analysis to reveal features of the relation to problems of transplantation and organ donation among doctors and persons without medical education. Material and Methods. The study was conducted on the basis of questionnaires from 266 doctors of donor bases, 420 students and 250 patients of the hospital. The author's questionnaire contained two groups of questions: the awareness of participants about the possibilities of transplantology and the legal component of organ donation. Results. The only difference between doctors and respondents without a medical education was a higher awareness of donor base employees in legal issues related to post-mortem organ donation in Russia (p <0.05). There were no differences between the examined groups in their readiness to support organ transplantation to relatives and to consent to the posthumous organ donation (pva|ue>0.05). Conclusion. Thus, the results of the comparative analysis of the attitude to the problems of transplantation and organ donation among doctors and persons without medical education with a naturally higher level of awareness of doctors did not reveal statistically significant features in the aspect of personal support for these programs. This indicates the need forthe medical community to develop an understanding of the importance of their professional participation in the development of organ transplantation programs to save the lives of the patients.
