EIT Food has been developing a new learning opportunity.
Currently, a key obstacle to medical professionals playing a stronger role in food systems transformation is their lack of training in nutrition.
If medical doctors had better knowledge of the link between food, health, nutrition and sustainability, they could play an active role in transforming our food system.
To overcome this gap in knowledge and to reinforce behaviour change towards healthier and sustainable diets, EIT Food has developed a short course on nutrition targeting medical students, doctors and healthcare professionals.
This course has been designed with and for medical students (undergrad or higher), and has been produced by the University of Reading, the University of Torino, the University of Hohenheim, the University of Groningen, IMDEA Food Institute and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), in collaboration with experts from Harvard University and the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA).
The course starts on Monday, April 4th 2022. Please find the course registration link here.
The course is mostly free. It is composed of 12 hours of learning broken down into 3 weeks.
Learners can study at their own pace, at any time, on any device.
