Message from the Chair:

If you are looking to expand your CV, there are multiple opportunities in the programme to do so! We require 7 enthusiastic individuals to present the cases for the multidisciplinary case based discussions, with discussion led by supervising consultants. In addition, we need 2 argumentative souls for the trainee led debate on liver transplantation for acute alcoholic hepatitis. On all counts this will require a small amount of preparation in advance.

If you would like to participate formally, please could you let me (Dr Jo Leithead) know by email at joanna.leithead@addenbrookes.nhs.uk . Participants will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
