The Section of Nutrition provides training at all levels for health care providers, including required and elective courses for medical students at the School of Medicine; lectures through the core lecture series for the pre-clinical medical students and for the pediatric clerkship; pediatric residency program training; clinical and research fellowship training; and continuing education for practicing physicians. We also have an elective for internal medicine residents.
Section faculty members also provide supervision for undergraduate- and graduate-level internships and practicum experiences. Internships include clinical, laboratory, and community-based research; development of clinical quality improvement projects; and analysis of dietary options available to Children’s Hospital staff and patients.
Section faculty are actively involved in the Children’s Hospital Colorado and University of Colorado Dietetic Internship Program.
