Providing the Latest, Evidence-Based, Physician-Supervised Weight Loss Medicine Systems

The Medical Weight Loss Training program will prepare you to integrate lucrative weight loss options safely and effectively within your practice. Weight Loss Medicine is highly lucrative and continues to be in high demand by patients. This course is very detailed and comprehensive, providing you with instruction on the specific FDA pharmaceutical weight loss protocols, hormonal protocols, bariatric protocols, and other effective weight loss treatments dependent upon medical necessity and overall patient health. As part of the course you will also understand other adjunctive procedures such as MIC injections, Vitamin B-12, and a variety of supplements and off-label use of other weight loss prescriptions.

Weight Loss - Low Fat vs Low Carbohydrate Diets by Anne Roberts, MD


The market for weight loss care is almost $58 billion dollars, with companies like Weight Watchers and Nestle's Jenny Craig (Nestle's Chocolate) making over $2B in annual revenue. During the Physician-Prescribed Weight Loss Training, you will learn how the diet functions, how various diet methods work, and about the contraindications from each. We understand that the concept of creating a weight loss program can be complicated and time consuming due to protocols, patient education, meal planning, nutrition, and creating an office staff environment dedicated to the program. Empire has streamlined this process by creating the patient workups needed for various patients and diet plans, including blood and hormonal pattern testing. Initial consultation questionnaires and other forms and protocols are digitally included in the course. Empire also includes a detailed outline of how to get started. There are many weight management options, and attendees will get an intimate understanding of how to combine them to maximize results; the right combination can help patients lose weight while shaping and toning their bodies with minimal exertion.

Weight Loss - South Beach Diet & Zone Diet by Anne Roberts, MD


Medical Training

Patients know that there is no faster, safer way to lose unwanted pounds and inches than consulting with their physician. Many patients are frustrated that most diets are ineffective and maintaining any results from the weight loss plan are poor. Our 1-Day Physician Prescribed Medical Weight Loss Course will allow you to seamlessly incorporate all of the popular medical weight loss programs and allow for modification to offer a personalized weight loss regimen for patients and a maintenance program thereafter to help patients keep the weight off permanently. The options we present are safe and medically proven to be the most effective, including pharmaceutical, hormonal, medical at risk, and other bariatric approved programs.

The correlation of being overweight to heart disease, diabetes, and other serious medical complications is well documented. Create a standard of care for your integration of weight loss services, understand the potential complications associated with obesity and poor health, but also have the knowledge to create a program that fits your lifestyle, medical needs, and overall health moving forward into the future.


Instruction for Weight Gain, Fatigue, & Chronic Pain Management for Patients

Empire has chosen Anne Roberts, MD as our lead instructor for the physician medical weight loss training program. (credentials and photo on Faculty Page) Dr. Roberts is an experienced, dynamic speaker with credentials to match her charisma. Dr. Roberts has one of the largest weight loss centers in her home town and she will outline the steps during this weight loss training so you can duplicate this strategy in your own office.

In addition, physicians will be presented with a proven marketing strategy to incorporate an effective, permanent weight loss center into their practice. Weight loss centers are emerging in popularity because of the never-ending supply of patients that require weight management and the abundant new income source that they provide.

How often do you see the same patients year after year and advise them about the lifestyle and weight issues that affect their health? How often do your patients encounter medical problems, such as diabetes, due to their excessive weight? As their physician, do not just give advice and consultation with these patients. Instead, offer them a weight loss program customized to their needs and create an additional revenue center for your practice. Offer your patients a higher standard of care and give them the tools to permanently modify their lifestyle! With obesity on the verge of surpassing smoking as the #1 cause of preventable death, primary care physicians owe it to themselves and their patients to provide the most current information and weight treatment options available.
