The Obesity Medicine Start Up Course and Toolkit

Approved for 13 Hours of AMA PRA Category 1 CME

This course is designed so you are ready to start your obesity program right away. Watch lectures and patient encounters, learn clinical and practice pearls, and have the handouts needed so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel!  Designed to be taken over a weekend and start Monday!

What purchasers are saying…..

Dr. Francavilla poured out her heart into creating this valuable content. I completed my obesity medicine training last year out of an interest to provide comprehensive and holistic medical care for my community, but I become even more empowered after taking your course because you made it applicable and broke all the modules down to the nitty-gritty. Your one in one interaction with patients demonstrating what I learned in the modules was the icing on the cake. Your tool kit materials were straightforward to follow and apply in the clinical setting. I am truly appreciative that you took the time to build this excellent and all-inclusive course. Thank you.

- Dr. Babalola

“I am thoroughly enjoying the course!! The Toolkit is extensive and will be very helpful in practice. You've done a lot of work through the years. Thank you for sharing it with others! As I go through your course, my confidence grows that I can actually do this and be successful. Your style makes sense to me, and the handouts will be utilized with each patient. I'm still in the process of setting up the business (YUCK!!), and I wasn't sure how I would operate the clinical program, but your course has provided the answer! Thank you!!”

- Dr. Leigh

Dr. Francavilla's course is well-organized and easy to follow. It is extensive yet concise in conveying clinically important information. Her years of obesity medicine experience shines through the clinical pearls throughout the videos. The patient interaction videos were unique and showed the lessons in action. The tool kit is incredibly valuable for any physician looking to start or streamline their obesity medicine practice. I highly recommend Dr. Francavilla's course.
- Dr. Kanji

Comprehensive and well structured presentations on all aspects of Obesity Medicine Practice with handouts I can use for patients and training of new clinicians and staff. I have been ABOM certified since 2018 and practicing Obesity Medicine in my Internal Medicine clinic, this course helped me to deepen my understanding of patients' management and business side of practice. Recommend to any clinician interested in adding Obesity Medicine to an existing practice or venturing out to practicing Obesity Medicine exclusively! Thank you soooo much.

-Dr. Olga Joukovski

I really appreciate how you break down and present the material. It’s so relatable, applicable& inspiring! I was going to ask for presentation slides so I’m so excited about that update, & the templates snd everything else you are adding to the course! You have a career long follower- thank you for taking the time to share!

-D. Woods PA-C, CLC

“After passing the ABOM boards, I was still hesitant on starting to integrate obesity medicine into my established family medicine practice. Taking Dr. Francavilla’s course gave me the confidence and direction I needed to “just start” treating my patients immediately. The handouts and intake forms were a huge bonus in getting my practice going in the right direction. Her program ultimately helped my patients start getting wins right away! Thank you so much for creating this course! I highly recommend it!“

-Dr. Kerry Teller

I purchased Dr. Francavilla's course as I was part way through my CME in preparation for the ABOM exam. At that time, I felt that while I knew what I needed to know about medications and felt comfortable incorporating them in my family medicine practice, I wanted to bring my theoretical knowledge of nutrition, physical activity, and behavioral change into a more practical realm. Dr. Francavilla's course shows snippets of her consults, breaks down her intake and counseling process, and provides her handouts in a format where they can be modified for individual practice needs. These resources helped me to jumpstart a more comprehensive obesity medicine approach within my primary care practice and there is huge value in continuing access to the materials when I need a refresher (like a shadowing experience on demand)!

-Dr. Diana Huang

The combination of lecture based content mixed with real patient interviews was just what I needed to help streamline obesity medicine into my ob gyn practice most efficiently and effectively. Watching her content made me feel like I was doing a rotation in an obesity medicine clinic! Even after 200 hours of online CME, multiple obesity conferences, and gaining my ABOM certification, Dr. Francavilla’s course really filled in the gaps of real-life application of the knowledge I’ve obtained while getting my certification.

- Dr. Sharon Marcanthony, MD NCMP DABOM

Master Mind Testimonials

Taking the Mastermind course was key in my path to starting my own successful independent practice. I started my career in Emergency Medicine, with no business experience, and little experience with primary care. I found my passion in Obesity Medicine but felt lost and overwhelmed on how to get started. The Mastermind course provided mentorship and guidance along with a small group of peers to turn to for questions. The video library was key, high-yield, and educational material that gave me the confidence needed to start treating patients right away. Carolynn was always responsive to questions and was able to direct me with regards to business management. She is a fantastic mentor and you will not regret taking the course!

-Karis Tekwani, MD

Dr. Francavilla does a great job with this program. The modules, small groups, and resources provided made it easy for me to transition into practicing Obesity Medicine without any delay or hesitation. Similarly, Dr. Francavilla's teaching style makes it easy for people to understand the material, regardless of where they are in their journey. If anyone is interested in starting or enhancing their Obesity Medicine practice, I highly recommend this program!

-Dr Kabir Harricharan

“I had the book knowledge from my own study and the board review courses but no real plan about how to integrate this into my practice. Carolynn was extremely informative and had great practical knowledge about how to set up initial intakes for obesity consults and also how to navigate things via telehealth. I was able to have all of my questions answered in regards to billing and the benefits of a cash based practice versus insurance base. Carolynn has been a wonderful mentor and I feel very lucky to have gotten the benefit of her extensive knowledge. She has helped me develop much more confidence as my obesity practice grows steadily. “ -Dr. Golikeri

"I had my first business consultation with Dr. Francavilla and left feeling empowered and capable. She answered all my questions and more. She helped me understand my business plan and strategy as I work to open my micro-practice. Her expertise was advantageous and I can't wait to work with her again." -Dr. Shah
