Nutrition Degree Offered
The P&S Institute of Human Nutrition offers a full-time or part-time program leading to a master of science degree in nutrition. The program (12 months for full time, 24 months for part time) offers physicians an opportunity to augment their training with a foundation in basic and clinical nutritional sciences. Course timetables allow continuation of practice during studies. The program's strong foundation in nutritional sciences prepares graduates to carry out research linking diet and disease, to handle the nutritional problems of the sick, and to plan individual and community health programs.
The Institute of Human Nutrition provides opportunities for program participants to interact with leaders in basic and clinical nutrition at P&S, Presbyterian Hospital, the School of Public Health, and St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center.
Applications and further information are available from the Institute of Human Nutrition at P&S, 630 W. 168th St., New York, NY 10032, (212) 305-4808.
