Aims and tasks

  2. Development of standards for the certification of competence and reference centers for pancreatic and liver surgery 
  3. Establishment of hospitation programs for liver and pancreatic surgery at selected clinics
  4. Cooperation with other German and European working groups and societies:
    CAOV , CAMIC, CAEK
    European Hepato- Pancreato-Biliary Association (EHPBA)
  5. Initiation and guidance of scientific  studies

The steering committee of the CALGP invites all colleagues interested in this special area to participate in the working group.
