UTHealth Center for Obesity Medicine and Metabolic Performance invites applications for our comprehensive Clinical Fellowship in Obesity Medicine. This one-year fellowship, the fifth in the nation, is designed for current residents or recent graduates of internal medicine, family medicine, or endocrinology training programs who wish to obtain rigorous, comprehensive subspecialty training in the area of Obesity Medicine. We are currently recruiting fellows seeking to begin the fellowship program on August 1, 2018. The deadline is September 8, 2017 for 2018 applicants.

This fellowship has been designed to provide trainees with expertise and clinical experience in the emerging field of Obesity Medicine, with a primary focus on the evaluation and management of patients with obesity. Fellows will learn how to treat obesity through intensive lifestyle intervention, nutritional, behavioral, pharmacological and surgical means, as well as how to address the comorbidities of this disorder most effectively. We anticipate that trainees who complete this fellowship program will be prepared to pursue clinical and/or academic careers focused in obesity medicine and to become leaders in this emerging discipline.

Fellowship training in Obesity Medicine will occur over 1 year. Trainees will spend the majority of time in the clinical environment learning about obesity and its comorbidities. By the end of the fellowship, fellows will have a good understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of body weight regulation and a fundamental knowledge of current research in the field of Obesity medicine. They will be able to assess a patient with obesity or other metabolic disorders and to determine an appropriate treatment plan. Trainees will understand and utilize standard and innovative approaches to the treatment of obesity, including body composition and metabolic measurement, novel combination therapies, surgical and medical integration of care, and they will participate in outcomes related research and/or new and emerging treatment trials. They will be able to complete a full evaluation for patients with indications for obesity treatment both medically, surgically, and the med/surg combination patient and provide comprehensive care that leads to disease improvement.

Fellows will also develop the skills to be a competent teacher of Obesity Medicine to medical students, family medicine residents, and endocrinology fellows rotating in the center. Outcomes and standard of care research will be completed under the guidance of a member of the Program faculty.
