We wanted to share about two FABM training opportunities for those wanting to learn how to teach the Billings method of fertility awareness. Keep reading for more information about how to get this training if you are a physician or a medical student!

What is the Billings Ovulation Method?

It is the simplest form of Fertility Awareness Based Methods. It uses observations of tangible body markers for women to chart and keep track of their fertility. The method uses the findings of the research done by Dr. Erik Odeblad and Drs. John and Evelyn Billings to measure the certainty of specific biomarkers and their correlation to hormone levels.

What are the benefits?

  • Helps women understand their bodies
  • Helps to identify possible causes of infertility
  • General health education
  • Effective form of family planning
  • Ability to differentiate between normal and abnormal body signs
  • Observing early signs of disease

For Physicians

The American Academy of Family Physicians has approved CME credits for Billings Ovulation Method Teacher Trainings. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. 

To register for one of the trainings, if you are interested in having a training in your city, or to ask questions, please contact Billings direct at: boma-usa@msn.com or by phone: 651-699-8139 (CST). You may also click here for more details, as Teacher Training Opportunities are posted as they become available.

For Medical Students

University of Texas Southwestern periodically hosts Billings Teacher Training for all interested medical students. The cost of the course is $575. This does not include travel or hotel expenses. Once trained, teaching courses to patients is a marketable service. It’s also a great certification to add to your resume.

For more information, please email Ambereen.Ahmed@UTSouthwestern.edu or see the UTS Student FACTS website for more information on FABMs.

Please contact info@FACTSaboutfertility.org for scholarship opportunities or to schedule a Billings training in your area.
