The Obesity Society Review Course for the ABOM at ObesityWeek

As a pre-conference to ObesityWeek, TOS offers our Review Course for the American Board of Obesity Medicine Exam where participants can earn more than 15 CME credits. Taught by the industry's top educators, the Course is designed to strengthen physicians' obesity knowledge and offers sample exam questions, didactic lectures and a 100+ page educational workbook for attendees to take home.

ObesityWeek attendees may use the CME credits from the meeting to count toward their 60 CME credits required to sit for the ABOM exam, even though the conference takes place after ABOM's final application deadline. Find out more about ABOM certification.
