Reasons You Should Consider A Weight Management Course
It’s no secret that weight management plays a fundamental role in healthcare.
When pursuing a career in aesthetics, there are many reasons why you should consider a weight management course aside from the fact that it broadens your skills as an aesthetic practitioner.
At You Can Clinic, we offer a Weight Management Course that is delivered by one of our experienced doctors. The course places an emphasis on the latest pathophysiological mechanisms involved in obesity, whilst discussing the principles of weight management.
In addition to this, the course focuses on newer therapies for treating obese and overweight patients, particularly the GLP-1 analogues, such as Liraglutide (Saxenda) and Semaglutide.
Our course costs £300 in total, with a deposit of £300 to secure your place. To book a place on one of our weight management courses, simply visit our website.

Reasons you should consider a weight management course include, but are not limited to:
- Career development
- Improve people’s lives
1. Career Development
A big reason to do a weight management course is for career development, as the demand for trained clinicians is showing no sign of slowing down.
Considering that ‘adults in the most deprived regions have almost double the prevalence of obesity compared with the least deprived (36% compared with 20%)’, it's evident that obesity will likely worsen in the UK during times of economic downturn as inflation increases the price of everyday goods.
This price increase has a knock-on effect on the types of food that people consume, as fresh foods are often more expensive. So, whilst people purchase highly processed foods out of necessity, these foods are inevitably more unhealthy and thus ‘increase the risk of being overweight and obese’. When you look at the ever-pressing issue of obesity through this lens, the correlation between diet and obesity is apparent.
That said, the importance of gaining knowledge about weight management and developing your career in aesthetics has never been more important. It goes beyond what people look like on the outside, helping them to better understand how their health is faring on the inside.
Taking a weight management course, then, not only enables you to develop your skills for a long-lasting career but also means that you’ll be able to help meet the demand of the increasing number of people requiring help and advice to manage their weight.

Another reason to do a weight management course is the flexibility that it provides.
A weight management course can be taken alongside your current job, ensuring that you’re not missing out on income whilst you develop your skills and further your career as an aesthetic practitioner.
At You Can Clinic, our Weight Management Training Course is highly relevant to all aesthetic practitioners trying to expand on their knowledge and develop services in weight management. The training course also allows you to monitor and provide support to your clients through treatment.

3. Improve People’s Lives
Another reason why you should consider taking a weight management course is to improve people’s lives.
As we’ve already mentioned, obesity is increasing in the UK. In fact, when you consider that adult obesity in England rose from 15% in 1993 to 28% in 2019, and 1 in ten children is obese by age 5, rising to 23% by age 11, the importance of weight management is emphasised.
With weight management being increasingly devolved to the private sector, the best quality weight management courses are designed to support the clinician in delivering an evidence-based approach as a component of their clinical service. This, in turn, makes weight management more accessible to a wider group of people.
Taking a weight management course can not only further your career in aesthetics, then, but also arm you with the information to positively impact and improve people’s lives.
