Doctor and Patient



Obesity is defined as a chronic, relapsing, multi-factorial, neurobehavioral disease, wherein an increase in body fat promotes adipose tissue dysfunction and abnormal fat mass physical forces, resulting in adverse metabolic, biomechanical, and psychosocial health consequences. The global prevalence of obesity has more than tripled since 1975 and the recognition of obesity as a disease allows us to research interventions to prevent obesity and implement evidence-based treatments.


In an obesity epidemic, most of the world´s physicians are unprepared to treat patients with obesity. Studies reveal that the biggest obstacle in the fight against excess weight is the lack of technical training of the vast majority of physicians and HCPs on our planet.

They did not receive adequate training during their basic training to work in the area of ​​Obesity Medicine with solid knowledge and excellence. In addition, a considerable part of the content acquired in the first years of professional training becomes obsolete after a few years. 

The Pan American Board of Obesity Medicine certifies physicians looking to bridge this gap. The certification is recognized as a traditional synonym of excellence and professionalism in science, and through this process, PABOM seeks to guide professionals in the process of continuing education and qualification in Obesity Medicine.

PABOM seeks to certify physicians of all specialties from all countries, and especially from American countries (North, Central and South) and through our review courses in obesity medicine developing skills to treat this condition effectively and safely, delivering a even better care for your patients and performing your services more productively and efficiently.
