Description

Knowledge of nutrition for overall health and wellness as well as therapeutic nutrition is recognized as integral tools for the prevention and treatment of many diseases currently ailing the global population.

The Post Graduate Diploma in Dietetics & Clinical Nutrition (PGDDCN) is a program with a combined integrative and preventative educational approach to health, nutrition and disease. This program covers the core subjects in Nutrition & Dietetics such as Fundamentals of Nutrition/Sports Nutrition/Food Microbiology/Weight Management/Nutrition Support/Measuring Nutrition/Food Poisoning/Nutrition during special situations etc.

Students are trained to use an evidence-based approach to transition patients from a state of disease back to a state of health and well being. Specifically, students are taught to identify imbalances that may be contributing to a diseased state and the overall etiology rather than diagnosing and treating individual symptoms. Our ultimate goal is to foster a future generation of practitioners equipped to help shift the current healthcare system from one of treatment to one of disease prevention and maintenance of optimal health.

One year e-learning program is specifically designed for health professionals who are interested in acquiring competency in the field of Clinical Nutrition.
