National Geographic Traveler Magazine called Ghent the third most authentic destination in the world. In 2010 The Lonely Planet was wondering why Europe has hidden this city so long.

“The 6th ELITA SPLIT LIVER COURSE, Ghent, Belgium, 09/09/2018-10/09/2018 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 14 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.”
“Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
“Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.” 

Dear colleagues

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 6th ELITA international split-liver course on 9 and 10 September 2018.

This split-liver course aims at surgeons who have already practical experience with liver transplantation and who wish to acquire the knowledge and skills to perform split-liver transplantation safely.

This split-liver course starts with a theoretical part which covers anatomy, physiology, strategies and organisational aspects. The practical session is strictly limited to 40 participants and offers hands-on training on human livers by world renowned specialists on a two to one basis.

The split-liver course was positioned in the days before the 13th IHPBA World Congress in Geneva in order to allow participants to save on traveling time and costs (Ghent is only 30 min by train from Brussels). Admittance is on a first-come first-serve basis.

We look forward to see you in Ghent !
