Share this post
To foster the extension of the expertise of ABOM-certified physicians to PCPs who are integral to the care of individuals with obesity, the Obesity Medicine Association has collaborated with Haymarket Medical Education and Gather-ed/Real CME on the development of an innovative, multicomponent, interactive CME experience, including on-demand learning available on myCME.com, a global leader of continuing medical education.
Titled Activating Clinicians to Deliver Effective Obesity Care, the program, supported by an educational grant from Lilly, is designed to meaningfully propel primary care clinicians into taking the necessary steps to deliver personalized, effective obesity care in their practice.
Using a digital small group, social learning approach, the program is specifically designed to facilitate engagement and mentoring between ABOM-certified physician Group Leaders and primary care clinicians.
To extend the education to an even wider audience of primary care clinicians, the following self-instruction modules from the group-based education are now available on myCME, where learners can earn free AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, AAPA Category 1 CME Credits, ANCC Contact Hours, or IPCE Credits:
The Current Landscape of Obesity Pharmacotherapy & Implementing Individualized Obesity Treatment explores the most recent clinical trial data on available and emerging pharmacologic agents to address obesity and related health risks.
The Pathophysiology of Obesity and Implications for Treatment Selection reviews the long-term pathophysiologic dysfunction associated with obesity and strategies for identifying weight-related health risks.
