It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to an exciting new educational product. It is called Clinical Liver Disease, and it is an official digital educational resource from the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases.

Clinical Liver Disease is an online educational journal that takes advantage of new technology to provide online information on the rapidly changing field of hepatology. This topic-focused resource selects a clinically relevant area within hepatology with new and emerging knowledge and presents it to you in written, audio, and video formats. All contributions to Clinical Liver Disease will be commissioned from thought leaders in hepatology. We will offer continuing medical education and board exam style questions and answers.

More than anything else, our goal is to provide you with cutting-edge information related to the care of the patient with liver disease—whenever you want it and in whatever format you prefer. With Clinical Liver Disease, you can learn from some of the leading authorities in hepatology. Anytime. Anywhere.

Whether you are a doctor, advanced practice nurse, student, fellow, resident, or any other health care professional interested in advances in liver disease, Clinical Liver Disease is designed for you. We are pleased that we can make Clinical Liver Disease free to the user because of financial support provided to the publication in the form of educational grants.

So, let me be the first to welcome you to Clinical Liver Disease. We want to hear from you about the content and format and about topics and authors of interest to you. We invite you to comment on controversies and challenging new information. Most of all, with Clinical Liver Disease, we hope to provide you the opportunity to never stop learning.
