Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Medical Education Resources, and Consensus Medical Communications are pleased to announce the HCV Nova roundtable meetings will launch in January 2013. HCV Nova is an educational program series of case-based, small-group, continuing medical education (CME) roundtable meetings conducted at various locations across the United States. The HCV CME meetings will discuss brand new drug therapies to help fight against this common chronic bloodborne infection.

Gastroenterologists, hepatologists, infectious disease specialists, and other health care practitioners who are involved in the treatment of patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection are invited to attend.

Effective management of hepatitis C virus (HCV) continues to pose a challenge for health care practitioners. The discovery, development, and availability of direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs) offers new treatment options and the possibility of improved outcomes for newly diagnosed patients as well as those who have experienced a relapse or failed to respond to previous treatment; however, their use introduces new challenges and adds to the complexity of HCV treatment and care.

The purpose of the HCV NOVA initiative is to provide specific, targeted educational opportunities for clinicians who are involved in the management of patients with HCV. The NOVA meetings will incorporate a case-based approach to present the most current data on the following topics:

  •      Screening for HCV – new recommendations;
  •     Identifying optimal candidates for triple therapy: treat now or wait?;
  •     Refining best practices in HCV care;
  •     Evaluating emerging data on novel treatment approaches;
  •     Subtle ways to diagnose cirrhosis without a biopsy;
  •     Things not to forget in a patient who has cirrhosis; and
  •     Novel triple-and quad-therapy approaches.

Upon completion of the HCV CME program, participants should be better able to:

  •     Recognize value of treatment to positively effect long-term outcomes, and to identify optimal candidates for immediate versus deferred therapy in anticipation of new DAAs; and
  •     Evaluate the potential impact of currently approved, and DAAs in Phase III, on HCV treatment decision making and clinical outcomes.

About Albert Einstein College of Medicine
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University is a premier, research-intensive medical school dedicated to innovative biomedical investigation and to the development of ethical and compassionate physicians and scientists. Inspired by the words of our namesake, we welcome students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds who strive to enhance human health in the community and beyond.

Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers one of the nation’s largest programs for medical education. During the 2012-2013 academic year, the College of Medicine is home to 742 M.D. students, 245 Ph.D. students, 116 students in the combined M.D./Ph.D. program, and 360 postdoctoral research fellows at our Belfer Institute for Advanced Biomedical Studies. More than 8,000 Einstein alumni are among the nation’s foremost clinicians, biomedical scientists, and medical educators.

When the medical school opened its doors in 1955, the New York Times was already noting that “the new medical school’s distinguished and talented faculty assured the institution of a place in the ranks of the great medical schools in the world.” This prophecy has been more than fulfilled in the ensuing years.

Among its pioneering educational initiatives, Einstein was one of the first major medical schools to integrate bedside experience with learning, bringing first-year students into contact with patients and linking classroom study to case experience. Einstein also led the way in the development of bioethics as an accepted academic discipline in medical school curricula, was the first private medical school in New York City to establish an academic department of family medicine, and was the first to create a residency program in internal medicine with an emphasis on women’s health.
