A recent report found that, "in January 2010, [internet search] terms related to weight loss such as “calories”, “calorie counters”, and “Body Mass Index (BMI)” were searched twice as often as they were in November and December of 2009....and diet programs were also popular searches." Equally, "people who explicitly made resolutions were 10 times more likely to attain their goals than people who did not," but up to 64% of resolutions are abandoned by Valentine's Day. To help physicians meet the needs of these motivated patients, the IAPAM offers the industry's leading hCG for Weight Loss Training program. Attendees at the IAPAM's hCG Training learn from expert physicians, pharmacists and other specialists in the field of hCG and medical weight management, and are given all the tools, resources and instruction needed to profitably add hCG for Weight Loss to their practices right away.
The IAPAM's hCG Physician Weight Loss Training offers physicians a full-day of intensive education on the clinical best practices of hCG for weight loss, lipotropic injections and Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) programs. Physicians and their staff will learn the exclusive IAPAM's hCG Training Protocol (based on Dr. Simeons manuscript, Pounds and Inches.) The IAPAM's program gives physicians "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.
