How to Choose the Right Medical Weight Management Certification

When it comes to choosing a medically-supervised weight loss training program or certification, it can be difficult to know where to start. 

There are so many different programs available, and not all of them work.

How do you know what to look for in a weight loss training program and what to stay away from? 

In this blog post, we will discuss the key factors you should consider when making your decision.

6 Factors to Consider When Choosing Your Medical Weight Management Certification

  1. The first thing you should consider is your goals. What are you looking to achieve with your medical weight loss program?
    Do you want to help your patients reach their weight loss goals? Are you looking for another way to increase your practice revenues?
  2. You will also want to consider how much support you’ll need to implement your new program.
    Some practices have great staff resources in place to create their own program and roll out great marketing materials to attract patients. Others do not.
  3. You should also look into who is offering the medical weight management training and certification.
    Sometimes it’s just one protocol (or a new “diet plan” where all they changed was a small ingredient to a supplement they’re trying to sell you).
  4. Another important factor to consider is the program’s adherence and sustainability. Will your patients be able to stick with the program?
    Is it something they can realistically maintain for the long term?
  5. The program should also be evidence-based. What research is there to support its use? Is the program backed by scientific studies?
  6. And finally, consider the cost of the training and certification.

Once you have a better understanding of what you hope to achieve, you can start narrowing down your options.
