The on-demand version will include access to view and print the PDF versions of the syllabi and any additional resources made available to live participants.

Board and MOC Exam Study Materials

AASLD is making changes to LiverLearning®, which will result in new learning opportunities and a better online experience. To accomplish this, we closed CME credit and MOC point granting on June 30, 2018. As such, the enduring on-demand version of the 2016 Transplant Hepatology Board Review Course [THBRC] is available in LiverLearning® but CME credits and MOC points have expired and can no longer be claimed for the activity. The 2016 THBRC sessions can be watched and quizzes taken for study purposes, and it remains a free resource to AASLD members, LiverLearning® subscribers and those who purchased the course previously.

Travel Note

US residents: Please review the Real ID Act regarding boarding federally regulated commercial aircrafts. Depending on your state of residence, you may need to provide a second form of identification at the airport.
