About the Course

The Post Graduate Diploma in Dietetics & Clinical Nutrition (PGDDCN) is a program with a combined integrative and preventative educational approach to health, nutrition and disease. This program covers the core subjects in Nutrition & Dietetics such as Fundamentals of Nutrition/Sports Nutrition/Food Microbiology/Weight Management/Nutrition Support/Measuring Nutrition/Food Poisoning/Nutrition during special situations etc.

Students are trained to use an evidence-based approach to transition patients from a state of disease back to a state of health and wellbeing. Specifically, students are taught to identify imbalances that may be contributing to a diseased state and the overall etiology rather than diagnosing and treating individual symptoms. Our ultimate goal is to foster a future generation of practitioners equipped to help shift the current healthcare system from one of treatment to one of disease prevention and maintenance of optimal health.
