at OMA Spring Conference April 6-10 in SF

Registration is now open for Obesity Medicine 2016, the spring conference of the Obesity Medicine Association (OMA), to be held April 6-10 in San Francisco. Attendees can earn up to 30 CME credits on the topic of obesity. OMA will also offer its Review Course for the American Board of Obesity Medicine exam at Obesity Medicine 2016. OMA’s review course had typically been offered only once each year in the fall.

“We saw ABOM’s exam application numbers rising, and we wanted to accommodate the need for high-quality exam preparation content for those physicians,” said Laurie Traetow, executive director of OMA.

Obesity Medicine 2016 provides education about the clinical application of obesity medicine that is unique for the obesity medicine practitioner. Health care professionals who attend can expect to take away practical information that can be used either in their clinics or as preparation for the ABOM certification exam.

Conference highlights include:

  • For those interested in starting or running an obesity medicine clinic, Practice Management Essentials offers “how-tos” and tips for everything related to clinic management, from furniture selection to patient retention.
  • For those focused on learning more about nutrition, the Nutrition Course offers an in-depth look at several different nutritional approaches to obesity treatment. Attendees can also expect to learn which nutrition plans may suit their patients and how to prescribe an individualized nutrition plan.
  • For those with a general interest in the different clinical approaches to obesity treatment, the Spring Obesity Summit covers a wide range of topics, including the most popular evidence-based methods and treatments currently used by obesity medicine clinicians.
