The Empire Liver Foundation (ELF) and the NYC Department of Health offer a half-day hepatology preceptorship for clinical providers (MD, DO, NP, PA, RN or PharmD) who have previously participated in an ELF Clinical Provider Training Series, and are interested in expanding their knowledge and skills in the diagnosis and treatment of liver diseases, with a focus on hepatitis B and C.
Participants will observe a senior hepatologist caring for patients with liver diseases during the four-hour preceptorship. The sessions will cover topics such as:
- Liver-directed history taking and physical exam
- Test ordering and interpretation
- Treatment selection
- Common comorbidities (e.g. HIV, fatty liver)
Participants can receive 4.0 CMEs, CNEs or CEUs for participation.
Participants will have opportunities to discuss each case with the preceptor and at the end of the half-day preceptorship. Participants will have the opportunity to continue the mentor/mentee relationship initiated from this preceptorship.
Registration occurs on a rolling basis throughout the year. To register, or for more information, contact Meg Chappell.
“In the clinical preceptorship, I was able to ask questions one-on-one; this was tremendously helpful. It was also helpful to observe how liver disease is described to patients and I hope to emulate that.” — ELF participant
“It was a surreal experience side by side with one of the most experienced providers of hepatitis C. I hoped it was longer and it gives me motivation to explore hepatology more broadly.” — ELF participant
