What is The Liver Meeting®?
At its core, The Liver Meeting® is the place to get the state-of-the-art science in the field of hepatology.
But it's much more than that. Plenary and parallel sessions provide the avenue for specialists to learn about cutting-edge research. Courses, workshops, and symposia provide clinicians with the latest in treatment techniques and options. Exhibits and poster sessions naturally deliver needed networking opportunities for attendees of all experience levels. For those considering a specialty in hepatology, the meeting provides an unparalleled forum in which to network and make an informed decision about a career in hepatology.
People from all over the world.
Our meeting is a global event, with more than half of the 10,000+ attendees in 2013 coming from outside the United States.
People with diverse professional backgrounds.
The study and treatment of liver disease is a collaborative effort that reaches across disciplines and professional backgrounds. Physicians, scientists, surgeons, fellows, nurses, mid-level providers and industry representatives all have a place at The Liver Meeting®.
Lots of first-timers.
Almost 1,600 of our attendees in 2013 were at the meeting for the first time; so you'll be in good company.
Over the past sixty-four years, The Liver Meeting has grown from the spontaneous gatherings of an insular group of like-minded colleagues into the premier educational event for liver specialists worldwide.
Whether you are a researcher, educator, practicing clinician, nurse, mid-level provider, or in training, there is a place for you at The Liver Meeting.
During The Liver Meeting® 2014, over 9,500 hepatologists and hepatology health professionals from across the nation and around the world will gather in Boston to discuss the latest in the field.
The Liver Meeting® is primarily an exchange of scientific research, but it's also an important networking event. And from the opening reception to the coffee breaks between sessions, so much of this networking happens in the Exhibit Hall..
AASLD is the leading organization of scientists and healthcare professionals committed to preventing and curing liver disease. AASLD was founded in 1950 by a small group of leading liver specialists (including Hans Popper, Leon Schiff, Fred Hoffbauer, Cecil Watson, Jesse Bollman, and Sheila Sherlock, to name a few) to bring together those who had contributed to the field of hepatology.
AASLD has grown to an international society responsible for all aspects of hepatology, and our annual meeting, The Liver Meeting®, has grown in attendance from 12 to more than 9,500 physicians, surgeons, researchers, and allied health professionals from around the world.
