Around 500 pediatric liver transplants are carried out in Europe each year. No standardized training or exchange of clinical standards exists. In 2015 the ESPGHAN launched a School of Pediatric Liver Transplantation (PLT) consisting in a residential course, not intended to replace the clinical training but aiming at supplementing it, focusing at the most important topics in the field and supporting the exchange of clinical experience. The 2nd ESPGHAN Liver Transplantation School took place in 2017, in the italian city of Bergamo and is now being run in a biannual rhythm.


PGHN trainees/MDs having interest in PGHAN. Senior allied health professionals willing to commit to all modules of school.


This School is organized by the ESPGHAN Paediatric Hepatology Committee and is designed to provide cutting-edge information on this critical aspect of modern hepatology. The Faculty members will provide interactive sessions on the selection process, operations, complications and the long-term care of these patients, and feedback on the delegates’ cases. The School will represent an initial step in the formal educational module for young hepatologists towards ESPGHAN Diploma in Paediatric Liver Transplantation (EDiPaeLT). This meeting should attract younger gastroenterologists and hepatologists who have an ambition to develop transplantation programs locally, but also more senior established clinicians who would like to get a state-of-the-art update in an informal setting.


Applications are invited for approximately 40 delegate places. Candidates should include their CV (up to 2 A4 pages) and a recommendation letter from an ESPGHAN member.

ESPGHAN will cover the following for delegates

- pre-arranged accommodation up to 3 nights (single occupancy)

- course material

The registration fee for the course needs to be paid upon receipt of the resepctive invoice.
