Obesity is recognised as one of Europe’s priority health challenges, however specialised obesity services are not widely available and obesity treatment and care can therefore vary enormously across European regions.
The EASO COMs Exchange and Mentoring Programme provides a solution by supporting the establishment of new centres that improve access to and delivery of quality, multi-disciplinary care.
The COMs network includes university, public and private clinics. The exchange programme is open to Primary Care Physicians, General Practitioners or Health Care Professionals.
The COMs Exchange and Mentoring Programme will provide candidates with the knowledge, skills and tools required to establish and run new multi-disciplinary treatment centres:
- Candidates will learn about COMs structures, processes and set-up procedures
- Ongoing mentoring will help these new centres to become accredited members of the EASO COMs network
- Candidates will be hosted by EASO COMs in several European countries, willing to share practices and expertise
- Candidates will be matched with host centres that most closely reflect their national health systems and language capabilities.
The programme is fully funded. You can find out more and apply to join the programme on the EASO website.
