Graduate Certificate in Human Nutrition  

New ONLINE certificate program


A new ONLINE graduate certificate in human nutrition is being offered from the Department of Nutritional Sciences.  We are accepting applications starting this fall (2017).   

This certificate program provides advanced study in nutrition that allows ​you to develop the cutting –edge clinical nutrition skills needed in today’s health and industrial settings.  

This graduate certificate is designed to educate medical students, residents and fellows, practicing clinicians, other health care professional (nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, health educators), and biology/chemistry scholars.

Many times physicians and pharmacists are asked to counsel patients on nutrition related subjects with limited nutrition training. This certificate program will allow ​you to have a solid background in the latest nutrition research, which will help to set them apart. 

Taught by experienced graduate nutrition faculty, this certificate will provide advanced nutrition coursework in an online environment to accommodate the busy working professional. ​You can complete the 12 credit hour, completely online certificate in as little as one year. 

The curriculum builds off of skills from professional experiences and the certificate is designed to expand ​your knowledge of the scientific basis of food and nutrition. Courses provide an in-depth examination of nutrient metabolism and nutritional considerations in disease prevention and treatment across the lifespan.  Elective classes can be included as part of the certificate ​if you are interested in clinical study design and research methodologies applicable to nutrition research. 

Full tuition scholarships are available for four medical students.
