Accreditation and Designation Statements

Continuing Medical Education (CME)

The American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians. AASLD designates this live activity for a maximum of 9.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification (MOC)

Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 9.25 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC points.

American Board of Pediatrics Maintenance of Certification (MOC)

Needs Statement

The conference will focus on genomics and the changing approach to diagnostics, management and research in adult and pediatric liver diseases. This course will provide a broad overview of genomic technologies and how they may be applied to understand the genetic underpinnings of rare and complex liver disorders. Attendees will develop a better understanding of the true genomic contribution to liver disease, and how this data can lead to personalized approaches to medical therapy.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, learners will be able to:

  • Get a better understanding of how genomic data can be used to answer research questions
  • How to properly use genomic testing in the diagnosis and management of liver disease
  • Get insight into the existing datasets that can be used in research and clinical care.
