Welcome

On behalf of the Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand Hepatic, Pancreatic and Biliary Association (AANZHPBA) we would like to invite you to our annual meeting at the Grand Chancellor on the 10th & 11th October 2024.

The theme for the meeting is “Distance and Diversity”. The program is designed to be of interest to HPB surgeons, rural general surgeons, and trainees. Common practical problems will be addressed along with sessions on how research and workforce development can be sculpted to help us meet the needs of our unique environments. We have a very exciting social and scientific program planned, which will allow opportunities to network with industry colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you in Hobart.
