Internships and projects for Bachelor and Master students

Internships create a unique opportunity to be confronted to research and clinical issues. At the Department of Hepatology, we offer a variety of possible projects and final theses for bachelor as well as master level. These projects can be either purely clinical or laboratory projects spanning the basic, translational and clinical research. Furthermore, in our outpatient clinic, we offer to one to two students, the possibility to take part in the hepatology consultations, in order to experience Hepatology in everyday clinical life.
