Testimonials - EASL hepatology fellowships
Choose the hepatology fellowship you are interested in:
You’re a young graduate firmly set on earning a PhD degree in basic, translational, or clinical hepatology. You already have an MSc, MD, or equivalent undergraduate degree to your name, equipping you to embark on a PhD (or you will graduate with one, within the next six months). You’re living anywhere in the world, but angling to study further at a European centre, different to your home institution.
You’re a promising, newly qualified postgraduate researcher, keen to expand your field of research. What’s more, you’re equipped and ready to develop your independent research career. You already have a PhD and/or an MD to your name, and no more than two years of postgraduate research experience, so you’re ready for the next challenge. You’re living anywhere in the world, but angling to study further at a European centre, different to your home institution.

You’re well on your career path, already a postgraduate investigator, whether in basic or clinical science, and needing a short, powerful career boost to take you up a level. You need to spend a three to six months at a foreign institution, to accomplish your focused research project or to learn an experimental procedure or methodology. Or perhaps you need to gain in-depth know-how of a sophisticated, clinical or diagnostic procedure not available where you currently are.
You’re a promising, young scientist, exploring the frontiers of paediatric or adult genetic cholestatic diseases. You already have a PhD and/or an MD to your name and hold a full-time position at a European institution, where you are poised to take your research plan to the next level.
