Under Construction: Materials are being added to each of the toolkit sections, please continue to check back in to find new resources.

Important Notice

These materials are presented by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, primarily the Integrated Health section of the Society, regarding the surgical treatment for obesity or metabolic disease. The documents presented are based on current clinical experience and medical evidence available at this time. The materials are not definitive, and are not the recommendations of the Society. The documents and their contents are not intended as, and cannot not be construed as, stating or establishing a local, regional, or national standard of care.


Bariatric coordinators are often tasked with the challenge of “growing their program.” For the Integrated Health professional with little experience or background in business development, this can prove to be a daunting task. The tools and resources included in this section provide a baseline understanding of common business practices to help you grow and develop your program.
