Diagnosis and management of hepatic nodules


Online Programme website

First time format
In an effort to focus on a more problem orientated syllabus, the EASL Governing Board has created a new clinical school format pilot.  A new learner centric programme has been planned for the Geneva clinical school which involves student’s participation before and during the course.

How it works
Post event: Pre-readings
Dedicated material will be distributed to all participant 3-4 weeks before the event. The materials include, but are not limited to the following:

  • EASL Clinical Practice Guidelines (topic related)
  • Key articles and case studies by KOL’s
  • Access to specific presentations in the LiverTreeTM

Participants will be assessed based on the content received with a quiz.

Day 1
Upon arrival, participants will be quizzed based on the material distributed beforehand. The quiz results will be anonymous, the information derived will allow the Course Director to identify weak points in the group’s overall knowledge.

Participants will be divided into subgroups which will be assigned a tutor and a clinical case, followed by some questions.
After a brief presentation, each group will prepare their own research and presentations based on the selected topic.

Day 2
Each group will present their findings to the rest of the class, followed by a question and answer portion. The class will then vote for the best presentation, followed by a feedback session for the new course.

EASL hopes that the new format will enable participants to lead the direction of the clinical course, focusing on their knowledge level and allowing them to take a more active role in deciding the focus of the course

Each school allows time for:

  • Intense interaction
  • Time for personal discussion
  • Exchanges with a distinguished faculty

The schools contribute to the training of new generations of hepatologists and are a major element of our association. Aimed at young fellows enrolled in hepatology-oriented departments or more experienced clinicians who want to be exposed to the newest trends in hepatology.

For selected applicants, EASL will cover transportation costs to attend the school and accommodation during the event (details will be provided individually once the selection process has been done).

Application is open to young fellows under the age of 35 and/or still in training.

Approximately 25 places are available for each school and priority is given to registered EASL members during the selection process.
