ABOM: Why Certify?

“The ABOM is the single board certification which illustrates your commitment to the care of patients with overweight and obesity. Since this is the most prominent chronic disease in the US, it is essential to have physicians that are educated and vested in treatment.”

Fatima Cody Stanford, MD, MPH, MPA, FAAP, FTOS

Department of Internal Medicine- Gastroenterology, Department of Pediatrics- Endocrinology, Obesity Medicine & Nutrition, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School

“As a practicing physician, I was impressed that the ABOM certification exam covered clinical competency and had questions that were obviously written by clinicians. It’s quite clear that being ABOM-certified will demonstrate that the diplomate has the tools to care for this challenging population.”

Ken Fujioka, MD

Director of Center for Weight Management, Director of the Nutrition and Metabolic Research Center, Scripps Clinic, Department of Diabetes and Endocrine

“The TOS Review Course is extremely valuable for any physician planning to take the ABOM Exam.  It is taught by expert leaders in the field and is conveniently offered as an ObesityWeek pre-conference.  You can attend the conference, take the Review Course, and a few months later – get ABOM certified!”

F. Xavier Pi-Sunyer, MD

Professor of Medicine, Columbia University

“Being an ABOM Diplomate, I can attest to the value of being ABOM certified.  It’s strengthened my knowledge and competency on obesity and overweight ensuring I can provide my patients with the best possible care and information.”

Quang Nguyen, MD

Medical Director, Las Vegas Endocrinology
