OMA Mentorship Program

Connect with obesity medicine clinicians when you join the OMA Mentorship Program: share your knowledge as a mentor or gain practical insights as a mentee.

What is the OMA Mentorship Program?

The mentorship program connects experienced clinicians with those newer to the field to provide advice and guidance for building a career in obesity medicine. This is a good way to stay up to speed on tried-and-true treatment and business practices. OMA staff will do our best to match you up with a mentor/mentee based on your needs/expertise, geographic area and preferred pairing type.

Program Requirements

  • All mentors and mentees must be current OMA members.
  • Schedule at least three meetings per year (minimum) with your mentor/mentee.
  • Mentors and mentees must actively participate in the program for a minimum of one year after your enrollment period.
  • Both participants will be asked to complete a short evaluation at the end of the initial year period.
