Overview

The liver is the second most commonly transplanted major organ, after the kidney. Liver transplantation is recommended for patients with severe and irreversible liver disease. Although liver disease is a significant cause for morbidity and mortality in this country, the sad fact remains that it is beyond the reach of most patients, either due to a lack of funds or because demand for organs greatly outstrips supply.

Patients with liver disease must be properly assessed, diagnosed and treated. Patients who need liver transplantation must be appropriately counselled. While awaiting transplantation these patients need the complications of their liver disease to be managed to prolong life and help them remain fit for potential transplant.

This course will ensure a deeper understanding of the basics of hepatology and comprises of online lectures by the course faculty.
