Diploma In Culinary Medicine

Nutrition and lifestyle medicine represents an important part of the healthcare picture. It represents that very thing that we can do for ourselves. The way in which we can actively engage in our own healthcare. This represents the opportunity for people to play a significant role in their health destiny. The problem is, people need to be empowered with information that is accurate. That is evidence based. That is useable. That is practical. That is relevant to them.

We need more people that are trained in Nutritional Science that can work in different ways to be there as a guide for people who need to make change. To support people in their healthcare journeys, and to be champions of this profession.

This course was created as there was clear need for an intermediary. Not the practitioner that is in the clinic helping get to the bottom of the patients unique medical circumstances. But a person who can have sufficient knowledge to understand what these needs and issues are, and that can help the patient make significant meaningful change in their day to day life.

With the new NHS investment in social prescribing, there is a whole new level of opportunities for our graduates.

What Can I Do When I Finish The Course?

Work 1-to-1 with clients to help them change their eating habits and lifestyle.

Develop heathy eating workshops and classes that can be included in NHS Social Prescribing schemes.

Become a health writer, start or grow a blog or social media profile.

Work along side clinical practitioners such as NT's for client out of clinic care.

Become a media commentator on healthy eating and cooking.

The ONLY limitation is your imagination and drive!!

Retired School Teacher

I signed up for the course really for my own interest and to support the health of my family. One module in and I'm blown away. This course manages to take often complex information, and make it accessible to give a thorough working understanding. 

Claire Halham

Natural Chef

II qualified as a Natural Chef 2 years ago, but really felt my level of knowledge around the science of Nutrition as a therapy was really lacking. I found this course at the right time and it is already enhancing my work life and career possibilities. I can take my services to the next level now. There is a lot of detail in the course but I feel this actual gives me competence. 

Mark Gilchrist

Nutritional Therapy Student

I am training to be an NT at the moment, half way through my second year. Obviously a sucker for punishment I signed up for another course. But, as this one is flexible I can take my time without panicking about deadlines. The thing is as an NT I feel I should be able to offer PRACTICAL support to my patients too, which the BSc just doesn't teach us, so this will be a great add on.
