2018 Postgraduate Course: A Hectic Day for a Hepatology Consultant

5 (16 votes)

Recorded On: 11/10/2018

The practice of Hepatology is largely consultative in nature, whether evaluating outpatients referred for a variety of abnormal liver enzyme findings or diagnosing and managing critically-ill patients within a team of internists, hospitalists, residents, intensivists, and other healthcare providers.  On any given day, a hepatologist will be confronted with complex patients and dizzying differential diagnoses to be methodically considered.  The aim of this course is to provide insights about state-of-the-art consultative Hepatology attendees that can be applied to daily practice.
