The EASL and AASLD Masterclass 2017 will provide a unique educational collaboration of clinical scientists from leading academic medical institutions from both sides of the Atlantic.
Participants will attend a two-day intensive training session. The programme will consist of academic lectures, interactive sessions, individual meetings with tutors, as well as social events. Prior to the Masterclass, participants will be assigned to working groups, and each of the groups will be led by a mentor, and provided a task and guidance to complete the tasks.
Selected participants will enjoy an inspiring 2-day training with practical advice on how to enhance their academic and leadership skills to succeed as independent investigators and leaders in academic medicine. Non-scientific related sessions such as: leadership and managerial skills will complement the course to bring future leaders in Hepatology at the forefront of Science and Education.
