Call for school proposals from EASL members

Call For School Proposals From EASL Members

Call for schools 2021

Submit proposal now

EASL would like to provide its members with the ability to participate by opening a call for programme outline proposals and proposed topics. In 2021, EASL plans to present two clinical and one basic school, to be held at the end of June/beginning of July.

In early 2016 the EASL Governing Board developed a new format for its schools of hepatology and in September 2016 the first pilot of this new format was presented with success and overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants.

The new format, designed to host 20-30 students, is based on a “flipped classroom model” that is learner centric and problem oriented. Students receive the learning material prepared and provided by the school organisers beforehand as homework. Once in the classroom, they work in small teams under the guidance of experienced tutors with an emphasis on teamwork and cooperation.

Locations for the EASL schools must be recognised European centres of excellence with all aspects of the competence in that domain covered by local experts.

In your practice or research have you discovered a topic that you think should be covered by an EASL school?

Do you think the new outlined “flipped classroom model” is a format you would be interested in developing?

If yes, we strongly encourage you to submit your idea and outline. If approved, the EASL Governing Board and staff will assist you with its development and presentation.

To propose a school to be hosted in your European institution, please complete and return the application form along with a programme proposal (indicating talks and potential speakers) to patricia.pochelon@easloffice.eu

Deadline: Tuesday 15 October 2019
