On Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June 2016, the
first Maastricht EAHPBA Postgraduate HPB Course will be given. This is
an initiative endorsed by the EAHPBA. The EAHPBA has decided to focus in
the years to come specifically on teaching and training. One of the aims
is to develop a curriculum where colleagues in HPB surgery can develop
their theoretical and practical skills. To that purpose, both
theoretical and practical courses are being developed.
The Maastricht Postgraduate HPB course is intended to serve as a
postgraduate training and preparation for the UEMS HPB exam. The topic
is ‘Liver and biliary tract’. The topic ‘Pancreas’ will be covered in
the 2017 PG Course in Mainz during the EAHPBA 2017 meeting. In this way,
applicants will be able to prepare for the UEMS Exam in a 2 year cycle.
Maastricht is a relatively small city founded by the Romans which has
quite a bit of history. The course is intended to have a maximum of 50
participants so that the interaction between the Attendees and Faculty
is guaranteed. You are most welcome to join for diner with Faculty on
the Thursday evening.
Please make sure you register early, as we expect quite a bit of
interest and ‘full is full’. Travel to Maastricht is relatively easy by
either train or airplane or car. If you need any information, please
