Medical Weight Loss Training
The IAPAM’s Exclusive Clean Start Weight Loss® Program Will Help Your Patients Look and Feel Great – And Live a Longer Life
The statistics surrounding obesity in America are alarming: Two-thirds of American adults are obese or overweight and obesity rates in most States continue to rise. In fact, most Americans believe obesity is an epidemic. More interesting for healthcare providers is that one of the fastest growing segments of the $65 billion weight loss industry is in fact, medically supervised weight loss. At $7.8 billion, the medically supervised weight loss market is not only a market perfect for healthcare providers, but a continuously growing market at that.
Getting obese individuals to make better choices and lose weight on their own doesn’t always work, as evidenced by the more than $65 billion that is spent annually on weight loss-related products and services. This is why IAPAM created our medically-supervised weight loss programs; to empower overweight and obese individuals to take control of their health with the help of a medical health practitioner.
Our weight loss program now includes hands-on training with the latest non-invasive fat elimination and skin tightening equipment. More and more patients are asking for procedures like CoolSculpting®, Vanquish®, and SculpSure®; and we will arm you with the facts on how these procedures work and how you can generate additional practice revenue by offering them.
IAPAM’s Certification in Medically Supervised Weight Loss includes our very successful Clean Start Weight Loss® program which prepares healthcare providers for the rewarding opportunity to help patients lose weight to live a healthier and longer life. In fact, over 65,000 people have already lost weight on our Clean Start Weight Loss program.
IAPAM’s Certification in Medically Supervised Weight Loss
IAPAM’s internationally recognized Certification in Medically Supervised Weight Loss gives medical professionals the tools they need to help their patients lose weight, restore their health and feel better again. In addition, we’ll cover how the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Preventative Health Benefit gives the Clean Start Weight Loss program the edge over commercially available programs.
Not only do participants learn from faculty who operate successful weight loss clinics, but once they complete the program, they can begin offering weight loss services the next day. In addition, they can learn how to incorporate medical weight loss using hormones into an existing medical practice or start a weight loss clinic.
