Participants will have a rigorous clinical and didactic experience, designed to provide a foundation in the emerging discipline of obesity medicine. This preceptorship is designed to provide cutting-edge knowledge on the management of obesity, and to train a global pool of leaders in obesity medicine who can deliver expert obesity care.

Participants will have the opportunity to observe the management of obesity in a large interdisciplinary clinic, where patients are treated with combinations of lifestyle, pharmacological, endoscopic and surgical therapies. Participants will partake in one‐on‐one discussions with clinicians, as well as formal and informal faculty didactic sessions, workshops, and education and/or research meetings. The curriculum focuses on clinical care of patients with obesity and the pathophysiological basis of that care, so as to prepare participants for emerging developments in this field. This preceptorship will provide participants with the tools to establish specialized obesity care in their practice environments.

Program duration: 1 to 2 weeks.

Note: the program is not available the month of December.
