About Course

[Hepatology] is a specialty of medicine that studies liver, pancreas, biliary tree, gallbladder and the management of disorders of these organs. This branch of medicine was earlier regarded as the subspecialty of gastroenterology but now it has emerged as a separate specialty of medicine. This is due to its rapid expansion and growing interest of candidates in the field of hepatology.
