The EASL Schools help train the next generation of hepatologists and scientists. Through individual work, collaborative teamwork and discussions with faculty, students gain invaluable insight into new experimental techniques and clinical approaches.

The format, designed to host 25 students, is “flipped-classroom” based, learner-centric and problem-oriented. Preparation for the onsite learning consists of online course(s) and educational materials hosted on EASL Campus and provided by the school organisers. Students are expected to take the online course(s) and complete the pre-assessments in the month preceding the start of the EASL School. Once onsite, students should work in small groups under the guidance of experienced tutors (Emphasising on teamwork and cooperation). The post-assessments and surveys are conducted on EASL Campus.
