An education-based organization, the International Liver Transplant Society (ILTS) focuses on disseminating information and keeping medical professionals up to date on news that affects liver transplant procedures. Comprising approximately 900 members, the ILTS participates in advocacy initiatives that promote liver disease research, works with public and private organizations to enhance clinical practices in liver transplants, and promotes educational programs that teach physicians and surgeons best practices in the field.
Among the organization’s resources is the ILTS online education network. Available at www.iltseducation.org, the website provides ILTS members access to research abstracts and video-based lectures. Additionally, members can sign up to receive e-mail alerts on the latest industry news. For professionals in a more specialized field, the network furnishes liver transplant education that focuses on surgery, hepatology, pediatrics, anesthesia, and critical care medicine.
