This MS program in medical nutrition is designed for current and future health care professionals, including "gap year" students, those who have completed their bachelor's degree but have not yet secured admission to medical, veterinary, dental, osteopathic, Physician Assistant or similar schools, and current medical students, residents, fellows, and practitioners (MD, DO, PA, DVM, DDS, etc.), seeking to develop a strong knowledge base in the nutritional sciences and its application in the health care field.
Students develop competence in nutritional biochemistry and its application in health maintenance, the treatment of disease, and disease prevention. Training in therapeutic diets, nutrition guidelines, and supplement and functional food usage will be integrated into coursework and culminating experiences. Self-directed learning using evidence-based nutrition research and case studies is emphasized, and students develop interpretive expertise and nutritional assessment techniques to use in clinical practice. Proficiency in reading and interpreting nutrition research is a key program goal.
