7th Swiss HEP Preceptorship Meeting

December 3rd 2020, Switzerland, Virtual Meeting
organized by
Ente Ospedaliero Cantonale Lugano and University Hospital (Inselspital) Bern


"What is Challenging in the Management of Chronic Liver Diseases in 2020?"

The annual HEP Preceptorship is an interactive course organised by the hospital in Lugano (EOC) and the University Hospital Bern (Inselspital) for about 40-50 physicians from different countries. 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.

Because of the challenging situation with COVID-19 we reinvented the format and will provide you with a 0.5d virtual course. We have put together a new and compact program for you with the most relevant topics of the original program. Physicians from all countries will be able to subscribe and follow the course from a remote place.
We look forward to welcome you to an exciting and interesting compact-HEP Preceptorship 2020. Please feel free to subscribe in the registration area of this website.
