Join us in Hepatobiliary Surgery and Manuscript Writing Symposium (2015), September 25th -26th, Beijing

Published: 2015-08-28

The 2nd Hepatobiliary Surgery and Manuscript Writing Symposium is to be held in Beijing, China, from September 25th -26th, 2015. The meeting is jointly organized by University of Chicago Department of Surgery, Peking Union Medical College Hospital and the journal Hepatobiliary Surgery and Nutrition, aiming to strengthen international academic exchanges and medical education.

This symposium has two main focus, recent advances in hepatobiliary surgery and manuscript writing. Renowned experts around the world will not only give speeches on some hit issues, including organ donation, liver transplantation and hepatocellular carcinoma, but will also share their opinions on scientific publication, such as preparation before manuscript writing and the skills to write an acceptable manuscript for non-English speakers. Many experienced hepatobiliary experts will attend this symposium. Click to see last year’s symposium: http://www.thehbsn.org/article/view/5312/6122.
