A Message from our President and Founder about continuing education: SCLRC has been actively involved with continuing medical educational programs since the first chronic liver disease conference held at Scripps Clinic in the spring of 1986. Now, thirty years later, we have refined our approach with new devices and extended the length and breadth of CME programs. However, we have never lost that intimate touch that is so critical to a great learning experience - an experience that is timely, relevant, stimulating, and meaningful enough that participants want to come back year after year. This has been both the educational mission and developmental philosophy that has transformed a single, CME activity into a strong series of educational programs. SCLRC annually sponsors over twenty educational programs on liver diseases across the nation. We are committed to the education of health care providers who treat liver disease patients in the future regardless of whether they are medical specialists, primary care providers, physician assistants or nurse practitioners. We look forward to welcoming you to an upcoming program.
