11th Update on Hepatology Course 2024


Dear colleagues, members, and affiliates,


Since 2014, Update on Hepatology has earned its reputation as the premier scientific national event in hepatology. Bringing together leading experts, clinicians, researchers, and enthusiastic young gastroenterologists, it is the perfect opportunity to share your passion for liver disease, access cutting-edge content from top experts in the field, explore and contribute to advances in the study and management of liver diseases.

Addressing the topic Advancing hepatology: navigating guidelines, embracing innovation and shaping future strategies, this year’s program will explore relevant topics for practicing hepatologists, with direct relevance to patient care: steatotic liver disease, viral hepatitis, cholestatic liver diseases, endo-hepatology, liver transplantation, liver cancer and much more.

Beyond the  stage, the course will offer networking opportunities, professional connections, and collaboration across disciplines to enhance patient care and to improve outcomes and the quality of life in patients suffering from liver diseases.

The educational value of our event is reflected not only in the selection of topics and expertise of our prestigious faculty, but also in the EASL and ESOT endorsement, an official recognition of the scientific quality and the impact that it brings to clinical practice.

Stay connected, visit our website for information, dates, and updates.
