AMMG Launches Online Education

Jeff Morris

The Age Management Medicine Group has launched its new Online CME program with a course on the Clinical Use of Peptides and Peptide Therapies.

AMMG’s Online CME program was designed to provide innovative, cutting-edge education for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists and other medical professionals.

A key benefit of the online program is that it allows you to obtain content in a convenient web-based format, and fulfill your CME requirements on your own schedule. You will learn at your convenience, while selecting topics of most importance to you. The knowledge you gain will be the most appropriate and beneficial for your practice.

AMMG has selected world-renowned faculty to present education focused on the latest research relevant to Age Management Medicine. “Our conferences are known for leading the way with educational opportunities via expert lecturers, case presentations, interactive panels, revealing science, and transformational protocols,” said Rick Merner, Executive Director of AMMG. “The Online CME program will offer these same standards of excellence, drawing from the same pool of experts, and providing practitioners with protocols and methodologies that will help create a positive shift in your practice and in your patients’ health.”

The initial offering, “Clinical Use of Peptides and Peptide Therapies,” is a thorough examination of one of the fastest growing fields in medicine, with applications ranging from improving skin care, to growth hormone, to the immune system, to name a few. There are over 2.5 million articles on peptides on PubMed right now. While it is estimated that humans have over 250,000 peptides, we only understand a fraction of them.

The course will look at these chains of amino acids linked together by a polypeptide bond. It will review basics, including the formation of a polypeptide bond by a dehydration synthesis, the difference between a peptide versus a protein, and the mechanism of action for how peptides work. But it will delve much deeper, with individual course offerings that include:

BPC-157 for Healing Gastric Ulcers and Superior Healing of Tendinopathies
Brain Health with Cerebrolysin and Other Peptides
Peptides to Increase Growth Hormone  (CJC 1295, IPAMORELIN, TESAMORELIN, GHRP-6 and others)
Peptides for Sleep, Improving Telomeres, Libido, Reproduction and Memory
Peptides for Cancer
Thymosin Peptides
Peptides for Autoimmune Disease
3 Peptides for a Wellness Practice
Progressive Peptide Therapy: A New Therapeutic Paradigm

These individual courses are offered separately, or as part of a discounted bundle. Those opting for the full Clinical Use of Peptides & Peptide Therapies Series of courses will also have access to bonus panel discussions not available with individual course purchases.

Peptides is only the first unit of what will be an extensive series of course offerings, designed to provide Age Management Medicine practitioners with the most complete and up-to-date knowledge available on this exciting field of preventive medicine.
