Interested in applying to an Obesity Medicine Fellowship program?

Click here to access the OMFC Standard Application.

Email your application and all required materials directly to the programs where you wish to apply. Send one additional standard application to the OMFC Coordinating Director, Stacy Schmidt, PhD:  See the below list of programs accepting the OMFC Standard Application. Priority application deadline for fellows starting July 2022 is November 1, 2021.*  Offers will be extended starting December 6, 2021.** Programs will accept applications until the position is filled.

To complete your application, please include (in addition to the OMFC Standard Application):

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Personal Statement including description of career plans
  • Transcripts of National Board Exams
  • Recent photo
  • Three letters of recommendation (from the director of your residency program, a recent supervisor other than your residency program director, and one additional letter from a clinical supervisor who can attest to your abilities). It is preferred that the letters come from the writer directly.

*Individual programs may choose to accept applications after the deadline, if necessary, and may request additional information from applicants.

**Obesity Medicine fellowship programs do not participate in the Medical Specialties Matching Program; therefore, it is likely that some programs will make offers after December 6, as many candidates apply to multiple programs.
