Nutrition Support Traineeship Program–5-Day program
In an environment where physicians have been trained since medical school to base recommendations on the most current evidence, and to critically appraise all new information, the credibility of dietitians will be based on their ability to do the same.”
The 5-day UVA adult Nutrition Support Traineeship Program is a unique opportunity to achieve a higher level of practice in adult nutrition support. Our evidence-based program utilizes actual patient cases, small group discussions, critical evaluation of research, and a practical, hands-on approach to learning. Experiences during the traineeship week are structured to spend time observing and participating in completing nutrition support consults, nutrition team rounds, review of syllabus modules, case studies and plenty of time for questions. Participants will hear a number of educational lectures and interact with clinicians from a variety of disciplines, including physicians, nurses, and others.
The traineeship is open to healthcare professionals interested in advancing their knowledge of adult nutrition support. International participants are welcome. To this point, the traineeship has served participants from all across the US and from 12 different countries!
Included in the traineeship program is an elaborate, fully referenced Traineeship Manual. Modules are based on the most current evidence-based information, and provide a template for education at the bedside.
