Medicine and healthcare in general are evolving towards patient/client-centered approaches. Practitioners of Personalised Nutrition engage in therapeutic partnerships with their clients that address the whole person, not simply signs, symptoms and diagnoses.
The practitioner spends sufficient time exploring the client's history to understand interactions among genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors that are impacting long-term health and often complex, chronic disease states. The resulting therapeutic programme uses a variety of safe, evidence-based approaches to support the person's unique expression of health and vitality
What is the Masters in Personalised Nutrition?
The Master of Science (MSc) programme in Personalised Nutrition is an intellectually stimulating and rigorous study programme (see modules below) that cultivates the development of evidence-based personalised nutrition and promotes lifelong learning and career opportunities for graduates.
The programme is delivered online, with full content support, by CNELM, and can be completed with full-time (1 year) or part-time (1.5-3 years) study. Distance learning students from Ireland can attend lectures at CNELM, situated in Wokingham, near London, subject to prior arrangement with the Centre.
Modules required for the Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) and Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) form part of the Masters syllabus. Progression to the PG Dip or MSc is possible following completion of the PG Cert. Alternatively, applicants can enroll on the MSc and apply for the PG Dip or PG Cert as a fall-back award if unable to complete the full programme.
What is the value of the MSc in Personalised Nutrition qualification?
This advanced study programme, created and first delivered in 2012 by CNELM, is designed to serve healthcare professionals keen to expand their understanding and practice of person-centered nutrition and medicine. It attracts great interest from nutritional therapists, as well as other health professionals including doctors, pharmacists, nurses, psychologists, nutritionists and complementary therapists.
The person-centred approach underpins Functional Medicine (FM). The Institute for Functional Medicine (USA) founded in 1990 and led by bio-scientists and medical doctors, collaborates with CNELM to enable students on the Masters course to access lectures from many IFM leaders in the field.
Applicants can enrol on the MSc, or the Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip), or the PG Certificate (PG Cert) in Personalised Nutrition. Progression to the PG Dip or the MSc is possible following completion of the PG Cert
