The Clinical Nutrition programme offers specialised training in the clinical and scientific basis of human nutrition. Through your studies you will be given the opportunity to improve your knowledge of clinical, metabolic and molecular nutrition while also learning about the issues affecting public health.

Students benefit from a high degree of flexibility both in learning time and content. The programme is designed to fit around your work and family life and to enable you to study at a pace that suits you.

This programme has been designed by leading academics and professionals in the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition. Many of the academics involved in the delivery of this programme are based at the Rowett Institute, one of the leading and oldest nutrition research institutes in Europe.

For over 100 years, the Rowett Institute has played a major role in informing policy and establishing the link between diet and health; it continues to be at the forefront of scientific discoveries on major diet related health and food security issues to this day.

You will develop your knowledge and understanding of

  • the scientific basis of nutrition. Understanding nutritional requirements from the molecular through to the population level
  • the food chain and its impact on food choice. Integrating the food supply with dietary intake
  • food in a social or behavioural context, at all stages of the lifecourse
  • how to apply the scientific principles of nutrition for the promotion of health and wellbeing of individuals, groups and populations; recognising benefits and risks

Clinical Nutrition for Disease Prevention (PU5541)

15 Credit Points

Chronic diseases account for 70% of annual deaths in the world and present a great burden for the society. Emerging clinical evidence suggests that improving diet and nutrition can substantially reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

This course addresses the link between diet and the risk of developing chronic diseases. Furthermore, this course provides scientific evidence as to how nutrition may be used as a tool to prevent chronic diseases such as metabolic syndrome, type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer and other chronic diseases. It also highlights the importance of scientific research on developing public health policy frameworks, which encompass a range of educational and regulatory measures aiming to contribute to chronic disease prevention.
