Schools of hepatology

In early 2016 the EASL Governing Board developed a new format for its Schools of Hepatology and in September 2016 the first pilot of this new format was presented with success and overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants.

Call for School proposals from EASL members

CALL FOR SCHOOLS 2020

Deadline: Sunday 26 August 2018

The new format is based on a “flipped classroom model” that is learner centric and problem oriented. Students receive the learning material beforehand as homework. Once in the classroom, they work in small teams under the guidance of experienced tutors with an emphasis on teamwork and cooperation.

Locations for the EASL Schools must be recognised European centres of excellence with all aspects of the competence in that domain covered by local experts.

EASL would like to provide its members with the ability to participate by opening a call for programme outline proposals and proposed topics. EASL plans to present one Clinical and one Basic School.

In your practice or research have you discovered a topic that you think should be covered by an EASL School?

Do you think the new outlined “flipped classroom model” is a format you would be interested in developing?

If yes, we strongly encourage you to submit your idea and outline. If approved, the EASL Governing Board and staff will assist you with its development and presentation.

Please consider the below program components when drafting your submission.
