Season 3.0 Starts with MELD 3.0

Season 3.0 Starts with MELD 3.0

Show Notes

They made a podcast!

Adam and Alex start by discussing the new LFN initiative: the Workroom–an online community for trainees in GI and hepatology. Then, they welcome in W. Ray Kim, Chief of the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Stanford University, to discuss his group’s latest permutation of the MELD formula, updated for the modern era. Dr. Kim talks about his personal connection with liver disease, important nuance inherent to the new formula, and where MELD may fall short–both currently and in the future. It’s a fascinating conversation to start our third year or, sure Alex, season.
