OPEN HOUSE: Medical Nutrition Program for Health Professionals Friday 9/12/2014
Nutrition revealed.Do you want to integrate nutrition into your practice?
Nutrition contributes to at least 6 of the 10 leading causes of death and medical nutrition is increasingly becoming sought after by both patients and providers. Yet current medical education lacks training for its use in patient management. The Institute of Human Nutrition at Columbia University bridges this gap.
Introducing the Medical Nutrition Program for Health Professionals.
The program starts with one-year of blended online/on-ground coursework, which meets one weekend per month, with additional online components. It includes an applied, comprehensive focus on nutrition biochemistry, growth, development and aging, medical nutrition therapy, clinical nutrition, and counseling techniques. What you learn over the weekend, can be put into practice the following Monday. The courses combine didactic lectures, research discussions, and counseling exercises to enable the effective and immediate application of evidence-based nutrition guidelines, as well as an opportunity to collaborate with peers in the learning process. After one year, you will earn a Certification of Professional Achievement in Medical Nutrition and can then opt to continue for a Masters of Science degree, which entails additional blended online/on-ground coursework and a guided thesis project tailored to your own area of interest.
