About

"Current and future challenges in the management of liver diseases"

The annual HEP Preceptorship is an interactive course organised by the hospital in Lugano (EOC) for about 40-50 physicians. This exquisite event takes place every year since 2013 and has hosted many internationally renown speakers. The aim of the HEP Preceptorship is to provide an interactive course for young and interested hepatologists and gastroenterologists with many topics around chronic liver diseases.

After a break in 2021 because of COVID-19 we reinvented the format and will provide you with a one-day course. We have put together a new and interesting program for you with lectures as well as workshops.
We look forward to welcome you to an exciting and interesting HEP Preceptorship 2022 in Lugano. Please feel free to subscribe in the registration area of this website.
