Nutrition - Fellowships for Physicians

We offer both clinical and research fellowship opportunities for physicians


Clinical Nutrition FellowshipIndividuals who have completed residency training may apply for a clinical fellowship in nutrition.

Content areas include inpatient nutrition support; outpatient assessment and treatment of growth and nutrition problems; breastfeeding assessment and management; and obesity assessment and treatment. Trainees may also have rotations with subspecialty clinics for conditions with nutrition-related problems, including cystic fibrosis, short gut syndrome and feeding intolerance, liver disease, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, and others.
