IBC Academy is a unique, one of a kind educational project by the International Bariatric Club that with aim to train, certify the present and future communities of bariatric surgeons and allied professionals. The Academy, comprising of the finest minds in bariatric surgery, has created a virtual university in bariatric education.

Our project is an initiative to improve the standards of bariatric surgery training and education across borders. We have started with a Fellowship of IBC (FIBC) program in April 2017. The FIBC courses will be a modern way of educating bariatric surgeons in clinical problem solving and decision making. It would test the surgeon’s strength in basic clinical knowledge and some hands on skills and serve as a benchmark for any bariatric surgeon.

Phase 2 of the Academy will indroduce of a Diploma program in affiliation with internationally reputed academies from across the globe. IBC will also follow it up with mentorship programs for continuity of education. The Board comprises of a very prestigious line-up of some of the finest in the profession. Each Advisor supports and endorses the IBC Academy initiatives, starting with the FIBC, which would be of the highest quality of education and testing.

This educational project sets to fill a huge need in the world, especially the Asia-Pacific region, where many surgeons are practising the craft with less than optimal foundations. The response from different countries and associations on this initiative has been overwhelmingly positive and encouraging.
