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.
