As on previous occasions, this course offers an immersive educational experience on practical aspects of obesity management and the role of interprofessional bariatric care.

The practical course provides a hands-on  learning experience with standardised patients and includes experiential learning  in challenges people living with obesity face in their home and clinical settings.
