Masterclass provides a unique educational collaboration of clinical, basic, and translational scientists from leading academic medical institutions from both sides of the Atlantic.
Participants will attend a two-day intensive training session in Amsterdam, Netherlands designed for future leaders in academic hepatology. The program will consist of academic lectures, interactive break-out sessions, individual meetings with tutors, abstract presentations and a poster session, and social events to give early-stage investigators (MD, PhD, or MD/PhD, or equivalent) the opportunity to network with world leaders in hepatology.
AASLD and EASL will provide complimentary registration, travel, and accommodation expenses for up to 10 candidates who are full members of AASLD to attend the Masterclass. EASL will also bring 15 early stage-investigator candidates from Europe to attend the Masterclass.
The Masterclass is designed to give promising early-stage investigators (junior faculty members) the opportunity to advance their careers in hepatology through a mix of scientific and professional workshops aimed at developing personal and professional skills.
In addition to scientific sessions, the 2019 Masterclass will include leadership skills workshops, grants and manuscript career development workshops, case- based presentations and discussions, and poster presentations. Attendance is limited to 25 participants.
