Yes, we do! Our medical weight loss training course is open to healthcare professionals who want to add this treatment option to their existing practice, including doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) and doctors of medicine (MDs).

In addition to doctors, the following medical professionals may be eligible for our weight loss and semaglutide training:

  • Physician assistants
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Registered nurses, as long as they’re in an adequate supervisory practice situation
  • Other professionals who treat weight loss patients, as long as they have a license


Non-US licensed providers are eligible to take online courses.  These courses are written for the North American market so some drugs or lab testing mentioned may or may not be approved in your home country.

No, training course may alter the legal scope of practice defined by their home state’s or country’s medical and nursing boards.

We highly encourage people interested in our courses to review the requirements for medically supervised weight loss set by their state or country.

At PracticalCME, we’re fully committed to providing comprehensive training to teach participants how to create effective and successful programs that actually help their patients lose weight.

However, our content is evidence-based and has been outlined based on extensive research and proven techniques. Therefore, we don’t offer a magic weight loss solution.

Instead, we teach healthcare professionals how to create a medical weight loss program that works long-term, helping them achieve permanent results.

Many pills and other medications promise to help people get rid of extra pounds fast. However, most weight loss patients complain they cannot effectively maintain a healthy weight.

Although the weight loss supplement industry is huge, no pill or medication has been shown to be effective for this purpose. Therefore, we have focused on creating a comprehensive training course with evidence-based topics that can help people adopt healthier lifestyles.

Our course contains over 200 citations from primary medical literature. These are a few content highlights: 

  • Food addictions and treatment options
  • The role of exercise
  • Macronutrients and how to build a healthy menu
  • Problems and limitations with current pharmaceuticals

Additionally, participants will learn more about how other healthy habits can promote weight loss, the importance of high-quality sleep during this process, and how to implement an effective hormone-aided ketosis diet.

Medical professionals who take our course will also be able to learn how to select an effective meal replacement for their weight loss practice, helping them provide comprehensive treatment to their patients.

Yes, you will! The term “medical weight loss management” describes physicians’ strategies to manage diet, fitness, and healthy behaviors. Therefore, it’s essential for treating patients who want to get rid of those extra pounds.

As weight management is a key part of a successful medical weight loss program, we’re fully committed to providing course participants with the resources, tips, and tricks they need to achieve better results.

Our course outline includes tips on handling resistant, reluctant, and defeated weight loss patients, forming a partnership with people who want to lead a healthier life, and using follow-up visits for motivation and compliance, for example.

No, it doesn’t. Our content includes information on pharmaceuticals and supplements, including novel prescription agents (Contrave, Qsymia, or Incivree) and GLP-1 agonists (Liraglutide, Tirzepatide (Mounjaro), and Semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy)). However, our course takes a holistic approach and covers other essential aspects of losing weight.

Additionally, we don’t recommend proprietary, multi-level, or other expensive medications as part of our training course. Our content is not influenced by sponsorships or biases.

Participants can be sure they’ll receive first-class, evidence-based training from start to finish.

Yes, you can! An entire section of our course focuses on the analysis of popular diets, including the following:

  • Low-carb, high-fat diet
  • Low glycemic diet
  • Low-carb, high-protein diet
  • Ketosis diet

Through this analysis, you’ll discover how to achieve ketosis safely and whether this type of diet burns fat. Plus, you’ll get comprehensive information on meal replacements, dietary recall issues, diet apps, counting calories, and more.

Yes, we do! Our course covers evidence-based topics, including techniques used by many medical weight loss clinics worldwide.

Semaglutide injections have been used for years to promote weight loss. Many experts combine diet and exercise with this medication to create effective plans and get lasting results. Throughout our training, we’ll learn more about this injection and its effects on people’s health.

Yes, you will! After completing our online course, you’ll be able to earn a certificate accepted for up to 6.0 prescribed credits by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

The American Medical Association (AMA) also accepts these credits as equivalent to AMA PRA Cat 1 credits toward its Physician’s Recognition Award.

This certificate is downloadable and printable. You can print it out and hang it in your weight loss clinic or just use it as a valuable addition to your professional career.

After purchasing our course, you’ll have access to a fully online streaming interactive presentation you can review at your own pace and to an instructor for a Q&A, which is essential to clarify your doubts and further expand your knowledge.

In addition, you’ll receive a fully downloadable ketosis diet menu, instructions for patients, and automatic updates at no cost for two years.
