Presented by: UPMC Transplant Services and the UPMC Center for Liver Diseases

Located in the heart of Pittsburgh, Pa., UPMC is home to one of the oldest and largest transplant programs in the United States. Our experts have accomplished many historical “firsts” and have pioneered and refined new therapies, giving hope to patients across the country and around the world.

Experts at the UPMC Center for Liver Diseases and the UPMC Liver Transplant Program collaborate to provide comprehensive care, early diagnosis, a variety of treatment options for all types of liver disease, and early access to liver transplant to all who will benefit, including those that other transplant centers deem high risk or unfit for transplant.

At UPMC, we are committed to reducing waiting list deaths by raising awareness and increasing education about living-donor liver transplant. Living donation allows patients to receive a transplant sooner, with improved outcomes compared to deceased-donor liver transplants. At UPMC, we believe living-donor liver transplants are a first-line treatment, not a last resort.

Refining New Transplant Procedures

Within these CME courses, UPMC experts provide a comprehensive overview on current trends, management techniques, new innovations, and research to treat liver diseases.

These CME courses offer education about living-donor liver transplants, caring for patients with end-stage liver disease, and trends in organ allocation.

Physicians may earn a total of 6.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits by completing all CME courses.
