Review Course for the ABOM Exam

Recommended by Physicians for ABOM Exam Preparation

Physician listens intently at the ABOM Review Course in TexasJoin the ranks of thousands of physicians who have become certified to treat obesity through the American Board of Obesity Medicine (ABOM). This comprehensive Review Course for the ABOM Exam on Sept. 13-14 covers the core content you need to know for the exam and for effectively treating obesity in your practice. The course directly follows ABOM’s test content outline, ensuring that you learn the material you may be tested on.

Fulfill Group One CME Requirements

Physicians applying to take the ABOM exam must first meet certain requirements, including earning at least 60 CME hours on the topic of obesity. Thirty out of those 60 CME hours must be earned through your attendance at a Group One meeting, such as Overcoming Obesity 2017.

Overcoming Obesity 2017—including the Review Course for the ABOM and the Fall Obesity Summit—is worth up to 30 CME hours and fully satisfies the Group One CME requirement for the ABOM exam application.
