Advanced Medical Nutrition Therapy

This course aims to expand student’s knowledge on a variety of common pathophysiological conditions and integrate this knowledge with the intervention of clinical nutrition therapies. Students will learn about the basic elements of medical nutritional therapy. These include nutritional assessment, which incorporates the use of anthropometric, biochemical and clinical data to determine nutritional status. Particular emphasis is placed on understanding energy expenditure and body composition and their components, and how these may change during physiological stress or illness.

Global Food and Nutrition Policy

Varying global and national forces drive food production and consumption within and among nations. The possibilities and limitations facing nutrition professionals in any given situation require an understanding of policy and the basic principles of policy formation. In order to be effective, professionals need an understanding of the indicators that are available to diagnose the situation, the skills to seek out information, and the ability to correctly interpret the results.

Nutritional Biochemistry with Community / Clinical Applications: Macronutrients

Students will explore the fundamental roles of nutrients in biological systems and the implications of macronutrient biological functions on food and nutrition policy. Emphasis will be placed on the function of nutrients as defined by their chemistry, interrelations among nutrient functions, mechanistic approaches in the analysis of nutrient‐disease relationships, and recent advances in the basic sciences related to nutrition and nutrient function. The course will integrate examples of community, clinical and public health policy applications throughout the term.

Research Methods and Proposal Writing Masters Thesis

This course is designed to train students how to conduct a literature review, how to summarize the information from the review, how to identify the gaps in the available information, and how to propose a study to fill one of the apparent gaps. This course combines classroom sessions, webinars, and individual synchronous tutorials with substantial individual work to create a proposal ready for submission for funding. Students will be taught how to perform each step and will be expected to apply it to a topic they have chosen for this one semester course.
