Why study the Clinical Nutrition programme from University of Glasgow?
- NUMBER 3 in UK for Medicine (COMPLETE UNIVERSITY GUIDE UK 2020)
- There is a growing need for suitable qualified clinical nutritionists who are already qualified health professionals, this programme provides training in evidence based nutritional practice for health professionals.
- Students have the opportunity to assess nutritional needs of patients and discuss the contribution of nutrition to the cause, progress and treatment of their disease and communicate the nutritional aspects of clinical care to health professionals.
- This Clinical Nutrition degree allows students to reflect on clinical practice and how it can inform local protocols and highlight learning points for their own practice.
- Our staff are highly trained, enthusiastic and experienced when it comes to Clinical Nutrition courses. This programme has a truly international flavour, taught by an international teaching and clinical staff and external experts
- You will learn how to develop a substantial research proposal as a team, gaining valuable skills for future employment. A range of transferable skills eg critical review skills, which are highly sought after within the competitive job market, are integrated and embedded in the programme.
- You will have the opportunity to observe clinical work at Yorkhill and the recently refurbished Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
Most of our graduates return to their clinical responsibilities once they have completed the programme. However, graduates have a thorough grounding in all aspects of nutrition as well as in their specialisation of clinical nutrition and therefore are able to enter employment in the food and health industries, public health, research, health promotion, food policy, the media and relief/development work in less developed countries. They are also well equipped to undertake and complete PhDs.
