IAPAM Helping Physicians Combat Obesity with New hCG Medical Weight Loss Program

January 7, 2010 |

Today, a successful aesthetic medicine practice is more than just Botox (TM) and laser hair removal. Medical spas positioned for growth often include offerings of medically supervised weight loss programs to their patients. Therefore, the IAPAM announces the launch of its NEW hCG and medically supervised weight loss program to educate physicians, of all specialties, on how to combat obesity. This session will cover the latest industry advancements in Medical Weight Loss Management, including hCG, B6/B12 injections, and prescription medications for weight loss. The Aesthetic Medicine Symposium now offers doctors education in the “A-Z” of treatments in aesthetic medicine, from botox training to weight loss.

Weight loss in the US is a $58 billion dollar market, and concomitantly, the interest of physicians in offering hCG and other weight management treatments has recently escalated.  However, incorporating pharmaceuticals and new technologies into an effective and profitable Weight Loss Program, requires a comprehensive understanding of the studies, research, and peer reporting on weight loss agents.  Therefore, as part of the IAPAM’s commitment to enduring physician education, the Aesthetic Medicine Symposium now includes a NEW half-day seminar on medical weight loss, covering:

1.  the latest hCG program protocols & best practices;
2.  VLCD/LCD diet programs;
3.  meal replacement diet programs;
4.  ketogenic based diet programs;
5.  the utilization of B6/B12 injections in weight loss;
6.  the utilization of prescription appetite suppressants in weight loss (Xenical(TM), Meridia(TM), Orlistat(TM)); and 
7.  laser and ultrasound assisted lipolysis.

Moreover, as part of this industry-leading educational offering, the IAPAM’s Medical Weight Management Program also includes:

a.  Weight Control Counselor Training.
b.  Counselor Certification (certificates for display).
c.  Operation’s Manual.
d.  Medical Manual.
e.  Advertising and Marketing Assistance.
f.  Patient Charting: forms and documents.
g.  Business Reporting and Management Systems.
h.  Ongoing Business Coaching.
i.  Complete Nutritional Protocols.

The IAPAM’s NEW Physician hCG Weight Loss training programs will be held on the Friday afternoon before each Aesthetic Medicine Symposium in 2010.  The location for the IAPAM Symposiums is beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona, and the 2010 dates for the NEW Medical Weight Loss Sessions are:
February 19, 2010,
