Obesity Medicine Certification Exam Highlights:


In December 2011, the Certified Obesity Medicine Physician (COMP) Steering Committee composed of 11 professional societies and the American Board of Bariatric Medicine merged their respective individual exam content, clinical expertise and administrative resources to form the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM). ABOM will administer the certification exam for obesity medicine physicians. The ABOM certification exam is a voluntary certification designed to elevate the professional standard of experience and expertise in the treatment of obesity and influence the future of this vital field. The certification serves as a mark of distinction for physicians treating overweight and obese patients, raising their standing among peers and the public.

Physicians that successfully complete the exam will be known as a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. A Diplomate is recognized as a physician who has met a rigorous standard of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of obesity and has demonstrated their knowledge of the practice and related disciplines through a thorough examination of obesity medical competency.  

When you apply for the examination, you are taking the first step toward joining a distinguished group of professionals who have made a commitment to professional excellence, career advancement, and an ongoing pursuit of knowledge.
