The NLA's Foundations of Lipidology course, formerly Lipid Academy, provides an introductory review of the core curriculum in Clinical Lipidology. This course is designed for any healthcare professional seeking to learn the fundamentals of Lipidology. Experts in Lipidology will lecture on basic concepts and guide participants through interactive learning scenarios that provide the knowledge and tools necessary to work effectively in a lipid practice, and prepare for advanced training.
