EASL Young Investigators Concerted Action Group (YI CAG)

Have you heard about the EASL YI CAG?

The YI CAG advises the EASL Governing Board on specific educational initiatives for young hepatologists. The group organises different activities during The International Liver Congress™ such as the:

YI Seminar

  • The YI seminar deals with topics of particular interest for YIs that are not covered by other sessions at the International Liver Congress™

YI Forum

  • The YI forum aims at addressing practical questions that YIs have, such as “how to write a CV", “how to obtain funding" etc

YI Social Activities

  • YI social events generally occur on Thursday evening during the International Liver Congress™. This is a great opportunity for networking and interaction with other YIs. Pre-registration for the social events is required.

In addition to these, the YI CAG organises the EASL Masterclass which takes place annually in December. For more information please click here.
