IAPAM Weight Loss Programs: 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 several states continues to rise. In fact, most Americans believe obesity is an epidemic.

Getting obese individuals to make better choices and lose weight on their own doesn’t always work, as evidenced by the more than $35 billion that is spent annually on weight loss-related products and services. This is why IAPAM created our weight loss programs; to empower obese individuals to take control of their health with the help of a medical health practitioner.

IAPAM’s Certification in Medically Supervised Weight Loss and our Clean Start Weight Loss Program prepare medical professionals for the rewarding opportunity to help patients lose weight to live a healthier and longer life.

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.

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.

The following is extensively covered in IAPAM’s Certification in Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program:

  • Utilizing hormones for weight loss (as seen on Dr. Oz)
  • Detailed Program Protocols
  • Patient selection criteria
  • Common medical contraindications
  • Consent forms, medical history forms
  • Legal/Insurance considerations, current FDA status
  • Medication ordering information and special pricing
  • VLCD/LCD diet programs.
  • Ketogenic based diet programs.
  • Utilizing Vitamin B6 and B12 injections for weight loss
  • Using prescription appetite suppressants in weight loss.
  • Metabolic testing as a profit center.
  • Adding body contouring as a profit center.

Does the IAPAM weight loss program work? Yes, it does. Since 2010, more than 65,000 patients have successfully lost weight on our medically supervised weight loss programs. In fact, clinics that incorporate the IAPAM’s Medical Weight Loss Program into their practices can expect to see revenues of between $100,000-$900,000/year, by only seeing 10-80 patients a month. 

The IAPAM’s Medical Weight Management Program includes:

  • Physician Weight Management Practice Operational Manual
  • Patient Charting Forms, Medical History & Consent Forms
  • Listing on IAPAM Weight Loss Clinic website (conditions apply)
  • Special access to a Weight Loss Medical Malpractice Insurance Program

Participants will also take part in a comprehensive discussion with our experienced faculty and a pharmacist on offering the IAPAM Weight Loss Protocol to patients through injection, sub-lingual, or nasal spray. We will also cover using pregnancy hormones for weight loss.

And, medical professionals who attend or who have attended our Medical Weight Loss Program can take their training to the next level by enrolling in our Clean Start Weight Loss Program.
