In keeping with BAU’s strategy to ensure quality education and community service, Clinics for Nutritional and Weight Management have been established since 2008 at the Faculty of Health Sciences to train students on modern curricula in the field. Developing the methods of treatment based on international standards three years ago, the Clinics for Nutritional and Weight Management at BAU are the first non-European collaborating Centre for Obesity Management (COM) accredited by the European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) as they meet their requirements and standards and will be adopted as a leading center for the treatment of obesity for three consecutive years.

These clinics are, thus, the first Centre for Obesity Management within the European network of EASO COMs in the Middle East.
