The University of Colorado faculty and guest speakers will address controversial topics in transplantation, including access to transplantation, recipient selection, MELD and new models for organ allocation, novel immunosuppressive strategies, new and emerging treatments for HCV and HBV in transplant recipients, and options for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma or cholangiocarcinoma.

The University of Colorado School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of Colorado School of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 14.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Just an hour and one-half drive from Denver is the quaint, historic town of Breckenridge.  Beaver Run Resort is nestled at the base of Peak 9, the largest conference center in the Rockies under one roof. This ski in/ski out resort can put you onto more than 126 ski trails. A free shuttle service can take you to other nearby resorts: Keystone, Copper Mountain and Arapahoe Basin. Other winter activities include ice skating, snowmobiling, sleigh rides and helicopter skiing, just to name a few. After a day of meetings, you can relax in one of Beaver Run's two heated pools, seven hot tubs, or experience the many fine restaurants and shopping.
