Education and trainning in obesity appears either as an unresolved problem or resolved with special dispersed efforts. In the last 20 years we have worked in this sense, both at a professional and community level.

Objectives: permanent education, diagnosis and treatment methodology, positive attitude for team integration, skills development or a better care delivery. Trainning includes programs for physicians, dietists, psychologists, physical activity instructors, and recovered obese. Personal and professional abilities are important. The first are: respect, authenticity, warmth, simpathy, flexibility, honesty, humility, involvement in study and research, discipline and perseverance. Professional educational program is divided into seniors and juniors. Seniors are individual or group instructors/supervisors of juniors. Plan consists in discussion meetings, medical auditory, educational videos, research work, rol-playing, activities with patients, update in obesity, nutrition, psychology, groups, medical care, physical activity, other addictions. Dedication: 8 hours/week. The program with group leaders include information, clarification, rol-playing for a better understanding of the group dynamics and ability to share all attitudes and tecniques possible. Dedication: 3 h/wee. Education methods involve levels of statistical significance and it incorporates teaching staff and evaluates all of them (also teachers) as another stage of learning.
