TOS Review Course for the ABOM Exam 2015

TOS offers a Review Course for the ABOM exam at its annual meeting, ObesityWeek℠ 2015, Nov. 2-7 in Los Angeles, CA.


Taught by the industry’s top educators, the Course is designed to strengthen physicians’ obesity knowledge as they prepare for the exam. The course will offer sample exam questions, didactic lectures, and a 100+ page educational workbook for attendees to take home.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe the factors that predispose to weight gain including genetic factors, relevant neuropeptides, alterations in energy expenditure and environmental factors.
  • Describe the appropriate steps in the evaluation of both adult and pediatric obese patients.
  • List the options that are available to treat patients with obesity including dietary strategies, physical activity interventions, medications and surgical options. Attendees should be able to describe an approach to determining which treatment is most appropriate for specific patient types.
  • Describe appropriate behavioral approaches to the treatment of patients with obesity.

Apply TOS Review Course Credits to sit for ABOM

Review course attendees may use the CME credits from the course to count toward their 60 CME credits, even though the course takes place after ABOM's final application deadline of August 24.

Here's how:

  • Register for TOS's ABOM review course at ObesityWeek.
  • When prompted through ABOM’s online application, upload the registration confirmation you receive from TOS.
