World Obesity Federation - SCOPE

SCOPE School is a course accredited by World Obesity's educational programme: SCOPE (Strategic Centre for Obesity Professional Education) and acts as the live component to the E-Learning.


The course takes place several times a year and covers all aspects of obesity management that professionals dealing with patients who have overweight and obesity are likely to encounter, and will provide a greater understanding of effective patient management and the role of professionals in tackling obesity.


This intensive course provides a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals to engage with specialists in the field and understand the new challenges in obesity management. Taught by leading international experts, the sessions will involve lectures, discussions, debates as well as opportunities to socialise and share experiences with experts and fellow students.



Participate in a SCOPE School to gain skills and knowledge, meet experts from around the world and obtain points towards SCOPE Certification.
