What do I receive when I purchase a product from the Obesity Medicine Academy?
You will receive a video-based presentation. In some cases, you will also receive supplemental materials that you can access in your account.
Is every presentation worth CME/CE credit?
Yes, you can earn CME/CE credit for any presentation purchased in the Obesity Medicine Academy. Before purchasing, read the description of the presentation to learn how much CME/CE credit it is worth. To earn your credit, you must take and pass a quiz for each presentation you purchase.
How do I earn CME/CE credit?
After purchasing and watching a presentation, take the quiz for credit. You can take the quiz directly in the Obesity Medicine Academy. Once you pass the quiz, you can download your certificate.
How do I get my CME/CE certificate?
After you pass the quiz for the presentation you purchased, visit My Education Dashboard to access your certificate.
Can I watch presentations offline?
Yes. For your convenience, all presentations can be downloaded as audio (MP3) or visual (MP4) files after they’ve been purchased. You can listen to or watch presentations offline at your leisure, but you must return to the Obesity Medicine Academy to take the quiz for CME/CE credit.
Do members get a discount in the Obesity Medicine Academy?
Yes. To ensure you get the reduced rate, ensure you log in using the email address OMA has on file. (This is the same email address you always use to log in to your OMA profile.)
I thought I was a member of OMA, but I’m not getting the discounted rate. What do I do?
Your membership may have lapsed. You can renew your membership online or contact OMA at firstname.lastname@example.org to help you renew. Don’t forget to renew your membership annually to ensure you always get the discounted rate in the Obesity Medicine Academy!

How soon after live conferences are the recordings uploaded to the Obesity Medicine Academy?

Can I get a refund?
