Continuing Medical Education

Mission for Continuing Medical Education:

 

The Obesity Society is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Obesity Society is dedicated to disseminating knowledge in the field of obesity and to providing quality education about obesity for its members and other interested individuals and groups. By combining the knowledge of our scientific members with the expertise of our clinical members, we provide quality Continuing Medical Education activities that:

  • Make available the latest results of scientific research on obesity and its related disorders to physicians and other health care providers.
  • Translate research into strategies and applications for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of obesity.
  • Provide training for physicians and other health care providers to implement these strategies and applications in their professional practice. The goal of this training is to improve their competency in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of obesity.
  • Assist in the development and implementation of clinical practice guidelines for physicians and other healthcare professional for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of obesity.
  • Encourage and provide assistance to physicians and other healthcare professionals to become leaders in community-based efforts that will contribute to a reduction in the prevalence of obesity.

To accomplish these objectives, The Obesity Society will continue to provide valuable educational activities on obesity through traditional live formats and will expand our capabilities for providing educational activities through new and emerging electronic and Internet-based formats.
