Heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity, kidney disease and other cardiometabolic-related disorders are increasing in prevalence and placing a financial and workforce strain on the medical system.

Providers have been trained to treat these conditions within their respective specialty; patients with diabetes are treated by endocrinologists, those with heart disease are treated by cardiologists, and so on. But this siloed care model is inefficient, expensive, and becoming outdated as we learn more about the interrelatedness of these conditions. For example, the leading cause of death in patients with type 2 diabetes is heart disease.

Because of the increased understanding of the complex relationship between cardiometabolic decline and overall health, there is an imminent need for a new method of care. Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) and its partners support the development of a cardiometabolic specialty dedicated to comprehensive care for patients with these risk factors and conditions, that will treat the patient as a whole person instead of a cluster of symptoms.

At Cardiometabolic Health Congress (CMHC) we are proud to offer the Foundations of Cardiometabolic Health Certification Course to all levels of practicing physicians, including medical residents, to realize our goal of expanding the delivery of medical care to include a cardiometabolic health specialty. We think beginning this training in cardiometabolic principles early is so important that we are providing an incentive for medical students, residents and fellows to begin this course immediately. Students at any level of training can now enroll in this first-of-its-kind certification course for a deep discount of $500 off the registration fee. Enroll now, and in about 75 hours of self-paced virtual education you’ll be eligible for the influential Certified Cardiometabolic Health Professional credential, an elite recognition of mastery in the field of cardiometabolic medicine.
