This course of study provides core knowledge in evidence-based nutrition with a focus on the role of nutrition in health optimization and disease prevention and management. Students will gain a detailed understanding of the practical application of various nutrients and dietary strategies used in clinical practice. Discussions will also incorporate the three components of evidence-based healthcare (clinical expertise, patient preference, research evidence) into the decision-making and data-analysis process.

This course of study provides an overview of essential concepts in human biochemistry and links those concepts to specific applications in clinical nutrition. The course will examine the biological roles of macronutrients and micronutrients and their metabolism using basic knowledge in physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology. Topics include carbohydrates and energy metabolism, protein and amino acids, bioactive peptides, enzymes, fiber, lipids, the arachidonic acid cascade, minerals, water-soluble and fat-soluble micronutrients, along with an introduction to energy production, reduction-oxidization balance and biochemical individuality. Participants will explore the relationships of nutrients to major health disorders, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.

This course provides a practical overview of nutrient pharmacologic therapy used in the management of ambulatory patients with chronic illnesses or non-life threatening acute illnesses. The participant will study the effects of drugs and nutrients on organ systems and diseases and the mechanisms of action (pharmacodynamics) of each, the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion of drugs and nutrients (pharmacokinetics), potential toxic effects of medications, factors affecting the effectiveness of drugs, and interactions with drugs, botanical compounds, foods and the below listed nutritional products.
