Nutrition Support Traineeship Program:

A unique, five-day opportunity to achieve a higher level of practice in nutrition support. Our evidence-based program utilizes actual patient cases, physician-led nutrition support team rounds, small group discussions, critical evaluation of research, and a practical, hands-on approach to learning.  Our goal is to optimize continuing educational time and expenses by focusing on the individual's learning needs. Also included is an elaborate, fully referenced syllabus.

Weekend Warrior

The week-long Nutrition Support Traineeship at the University of Virginia Medical Center has been very successful. However, we realize that it is not always practical or financially possible for clinicians to leave work or home for a full week at a time. The goal of this program is to provide as much up to date, practical nutrition support education as possible in a shorter 2-day course. Lectures will be enhanced by interactive case studies, question and answer periods, and group discussions.  The program has also expanded to include "On the Road" versions of the program.
