IAPAM's hCG Training Educates Physicians in Medical Weight Management Best Practices
The IAPAM is committed to educating physicians in the industry's best practices for hCG in medical weight loss management.
September 29, 2010 (Newswire.com) - In support of this commitment, the IAPAM's hCG Physician Training offers doctors a unique program of unsurpassed clinical and business content on medical weight management. Attendees receive tools to help them launch their weight management program, and with their IAPAM Membership, they also receive a year of practice support including access to the IAPAM Members Portal, containing a wealth of medical weight management resources, such as expert answers to common hCG questions.
In its annual report, F is for Fat 2010, the Trust for America's Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that adult obesity rates climbed in 28 states in 2009, and now exceed 25 percent in more than two-thirds of the US, with rates higher among Blacks and Latinos. Given this widespread epidemic, more and more patients are asking their physicians about weight loss strategies, and one of the most discussed is hCG.
However, physicians must be consummately trained in the delivery of an hCG Protocol to ensure success and safety for their patients. In response, the IAPAM has created the most complete and comprehensive Medical Weight Management program covering hCG for weight loss. Physicians and their staff will learn the exclusive IAPAM hCG for Weight Loss Protocol. Physicians, who attend the IAPAM's weight loss program, will learn weight management best practices from the IAPAM's members and faculty (physicians, pharmacists, laser assisted lipolysis specialists and business experts), all of whom have years of experience utilizing hCG for weight loss.
The IAPAM's program gives doctors "everything they need to start offering medical weight loss programs to their patients immediately upon returning to their practices," emphasizes Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM, and one of the IAPAM faculty instructors presenting at the IAPAM's hCG training. The IAPAM seminar includes:

- Patient selection criteria
- Common medical contraindications
- Current FDA status & requirements

- Weight Management Practice Operational Manual

- Special Pricing for hCG and Meal Replacement Products
Jeff Russell reinforces, "we not only cover hCG for weight loss, but also: B6/B12 injections, lipotropic injections, pharmacology, supplements & lipase inhibitors, ketogenic diets, VLCD/LCD, and meal replacement programs." Finally, the IAPAM's full day hCG training is the only medical weight loss training in North America approved for a special medical malpractice rate for those who have attended and have been certified by the IAPAM.
