This intensive 2-day training course offers an in-depth review of the core curriculum in Clinical Lipidology for health care professionals who desire to practice at an advanced level within the field. Learn from leading experts, assess your knowledge of lipid science and advance your personal standard of practice.

The lectures are supplemented with Q&A sessions using an audience response system that facilitates interactive learning and in-depth coverage of the exam content areas. In addition, a complete syllabus with copies of the slides is provided to all participants. All paid attendees will receive access to a special web page providing downloadable resources and additional self-study materials.

Masters in Lipidology is offered as a 2-day course prior to each scientific meeting conducted by the NLA.

Course Curriculum:

Lipoprotein Metabolism, Genetics, and Familial Lipid Disorders
Vascular Biology and and Atherosclerosis Pathogenesis
Evidence Based Medicine, Cardiovascular Risk Assessment, and Practice Guidelines
Advanced Lipidology: Cardiovascular Biomarkers, Atherosclerosis Imaging, and Evidence Based Practice
Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes Mellitus
Nutrition and Non-Pharmacologic Therapy
Pharmacology Part I- Lipid Lowering Drugs, Drug Interactions, and Drug Safety
Pharmacology Part II- Randomized Controlled Trials, Evidence Based Treatment, and Combination Therapy
Complex Case and Consultative Lipidology 

Target Audience
This activity is designed to meet the needs of physicians, physician assistants, pharmacists, registered nurses, advance practice registered nurses, nurse practitioners and registered dietitians with an interest in lipid management.

Upon completion of the educational activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Apply basic principles of evidence based medicine to enhance understanding of clinical trial results, methods for cardiovascular risk stratification, and applying new research into practice
  2. Assess the side effects of lipid-altering drugs to encourage their safe use in cardiovascular disease prevention
  3. Assess traditional and emerging biomarkers for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease
  4. Describe combination therapies for the management of complex lipid disorders and residual risk.
  5. Describe effective diet and lifestyle (exercise, weight management) strategies for the management of dyslipidemia and cardiovascular risk
  6. Describe genetic disorders affecting lipoprotein metabolism
  7. Describe the vascular biology and pathophysiology of atherosclerosis
  8. Explain clinical practice guidelines, the different types of evidence used to make clinical guidelines, and the role of clinical judgment in applying guidelines to practice
  9. Explain how obesity and adiposopathy contribute to the metabolic syndrome and diabetes mellitus
  10. Explain lipoprotein metabolism and its role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis
  11. For Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners Only: Provide appropriate care and counsel for patients and their families
  12. Identify how general dietary patterns and specific macronutrients (fats, carbohydrates) affect coronary heart disease and lipids
  13. Identify management strategies for the cardiometabolic risk factors of the metabolic syndrome
  14. Identify the evidence base that supports current dietary recommendations for heart health
  15. Manage complex dyslipidemia and dyslipidemia in special populations
  16. Outline current issues and approaches to global CV risk assessment;
  17. Review clinical trials of lipid-altering drug therapies used in cardiovascular disease prevention
  18. Review the mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy of available FDA approved drugs for the management of lipid disorders
  19. Review the role of subclinical atherosclerosis testing (imaging) in cardiovascular disease risk assessment and management
