New Obesity Medicine Physician Certification
Physicians will soon be able to become specialists in weight management, says Robert Kushner, president of the Obesity Society. The obesity group and 10 other professional societies, including the American Diabetes Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics, are creating an Obesity Medicine Physician Certification (OMPC) for doctors who pass an examination on nutrition, exercise, psychology and medicine. Doctors will be able to earn the certificate in 2010 (Hellmich, USA Today).
