Over one-third of adults in the United States and more than half a billion adult’s worldwide struggle with obesity. Head to toe, nearly every organ system can be negatively impacted by obesity, resulting in multiple metabolic and mechanical complications including type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, heart disease, obstructive sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, and a number of different cancers. Unfortunately, the majority of physicians receive little to no education or training in obesity management. Although relatively new, the field of obesity medicine continues to experience tremendous growth as the understanding of this disease, the appreciation of its complexity, and the treatments offered all rapidly improve. Physicians with specialized training and knowledge in obesity medicine can best manage this disease and its comorbidities.

Our obesity medicine fellowship provides this focused education and well prepares you for a career in weight management. The Wake Forest Weight Management Center is one of the few centers nationwide that combines distinguished medical, psychological, nutrition, and exercise experts- all housed in first class facilities, using highly innovative technology to provide exceptional care. Fellows will have the opportunity for knowledge and skill development in each of these disciplines. In addition, under guidance from the various members of our medical team, fellows will develop strong clinical skills and participate in research. Furthermore, fellows will gain experience with the surgical management of obesity and its complications. Additional opportunities include journal club, travel to national conferences, and review courses. Finally, the fellowship will adequately prepare trainees to sit for the American Board of Obesity Medicine exam.

Prerequisites:

  • Completed residency in ACGME accredited Internal Medicine or Family Medicine
