3 day Nutrition Support Traineeship

Click here for a Session Calendar

Location:  University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, VA

Description: While the 5-day Nutrition Support Traineeship remains our most in-depth and extensive training program, we understand that it is not possible for all clinicians to leave work &/or travel to Charlottesville for a full week.  Therefore, in addition to our comprehensive week-long (5 day) traineeship, we will begin to offer a 3-day version of the traineeship.  Click here for information on the 5-day traineeship program.

Many of the most popular sessions from the week-long traineeship will be offered, including enteral and parenteral nutrition, fluid and electrolytes, critical care, and surgical topics.  Participants will interact with nutrition support specialists, physicians, nurses and others at the UVA Health System.   As with the 5-day traineeship, only adult nutrition support will be covered.  Registration is limited to 6-7 participants to allow for plenty of individualized attention and discussion.

The program will run from approximately 8:30 – 4:30 on days 1 & 2; 9:00 am – 3:00 pm on day 3.  A daily schedule will be sent to participants in advance of the program.  A tentative schedule is available upon request.
