Embedded in the curriculum is the concept of bio-individuality which enables clinicians to be able to provide customized diet and nutrient recommendations that will be effective. This is provided with an evidence-based scientific approach.
At the University of Bridgeport, the Human Nutrition Program provides a biochemical and physiological study of nutrition and its role in health and disease. Students gain skill in counseling in alternative and complementary medicine using nutritional strategies. The program further explores the role of nutrition as a preventive, adjunctive, alternative strategy for the prevention and amelioration of specific health conditions.
The program also provides its graduates with a foundation for entering doctoral-level programs, including the Doctor of Health Sciences.
Our student body is diverse and includes leading physicians from various fields and specialties, various allied health care professionals, as well as those seeking to make a career change into nutritionally-based healthcare. Our faculty is highly experienced at teaching to this diverse group of students and provide a fertile ground for learning and scholarly interchange.
