Listing meetings or courses on

The ASMBS does not endorse or support courses given outside the auspices of the ASMBS. However, the ASMBS may provide a listing and link on its website to relevant courses given by nonprofit organizations where at least one of the course directors is an ASMBS member or where the mission of the organization is primarily educational.

Policy Exception

  1. ASMBS may endorse or support educational programs pertaining to the treatment of obesity and related metabolic conditions provided (a) the courses are presented/organized by a nonprofit organization whose mission is primarily educational; (b) the ASMBS has equal input regarding all stages of the design, content formulation, faculty designation and other organizational aspects of the program; and (c) the course or program does not conflict with the policies, positions and/or programs of ASMBS.

  2. ASMBS may endorse courses where the subject matter is outside the clinical/medical expertise of the ASMBS and its members yet its mission is germane to the treatment of obesity and related metabolic conditions.

  3. Decisions regarding support or endorsement of non-ASMBS courses are ultimately within the sole discretion of the Executive Council.


The upcoming courses listed below are provided for the benefit of our members who may find the subject matter of interest. Unless expressly stated otherwise, ASMBS has not reviewed and does not endorse any course listed.
