Introducing Liver Fellow Network: a platform for fellows, by fellows

Welcome to the official website of Liver Fellow Network! 

Liver Fellow Network (LFN) is a collaboration between gastroenterology and hepatology trainees who feel there is a gap in educational resources within the specialty of hepatology. LFN is committed to producing quality and relevant educational content that is easily digestible and data-driven. We know that mediums like a 50-slide didactic or self-directed reading lists are often cornerstones of non-clinical education. At LFN, we feel there is a better way of synthesizing high-yield information incorporating audio and visual media.

The bulk of the content is organized into our “Core Series”:

  1. Evidence corner: An examination of landmark studies that shape how we treat patients with liver disease.
  2. Clinical pearls: A case-based, succinct learning initiative highlighting important management considerations within hepatology.
  3. Pathology pearls: A review of high-yield liver-related pathology teaching points.
  4. Tweetorials: An index of #tweetorials at your fingertips for all things liver!
  5. The Why? Series: An exploration into the “dogma” of liver disease. Have you ever wondered, for example, why the AST is elevated in excess of the ALT in alcohol-associated liver disease? The Why? Series takes a comprehensive look at this and other important topics. 

We’ll also be producing a monthly podcast, “Decompensated: The Liver Fellow Network Podcast”, which takes a deep, (hopefully) entertaining dive into important topics within liver disease.
