Delegates will meet in small groups to look, learn, ask questions, and test material  used for procedures under the tutelage of experts in the field. This activity is presented in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere during which delegates can talk with experts and ask an array of  questions related to the practice of interventions in patients with liver disease.

Skills in hepatology sessions are aimed at increasing the awareness of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and offer delegates the possibility of examining their knowledge and skills.
