Nutrition - Fellowships for Physicians


We offer both clinical and research fellowship opportunities for physicians

 

Clinical Nutrition Fellowship:  This program is designed for motivated individuals with an interest in a career that involves nutrition medicine.  Physicians who have completed a 3-year ACGME-accredited residency program may apply. Proof of citizenship or a valid Visa allowing fellowship training is required.  We encourage applications from members of under-represented minority groups. Clinical training consists of 6 to 12 months of clinical service in pediatric nutrition and in related areas in adult medicine as appropriate to the trainee's interests. 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.

 
Nutrition Research Fellowship:  Physicians are eligible to apply for the NIH T32 Research Fellowship.  For most physicians, this will be upon completion of the Clinical Nutrition Fellowship.
