PROGRAM OVERVIEW

  • Clinical Training: Participants will develop specialized nutrition skills and knowledge through a four week clinical rotation with program faculty. Faculty members are recognized as leaders in the area of nutrition therapy and research. Participants spend two weeks on-site with each of two faculty members. This one-on-one mentoring opportunity provides intense immersion into the science and practice of specialized nutrition support.
  • Publication: Working with their faculty mentors during their clinical training, participants will select a primary nutrition topic that will be developed into a clinical review paper and submitted to a journal for publication.
  • Professional Association: Participants who complete their rotation and submit a clinical review paper for publication are sponsored to attend the A.S.P.E.N. Clinical Nutrition Week activities the January following their rotations. They are typically involved in delivering a professional presentation during the meeting.
