More about Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics

The foundation of first-cycle education in health and medical sciences and food and nutrition sciences is common to all students and is the starting point for continuing education in, chosen by students, one of two specializations: Clinical Dietetics or Nutrition in Sports and Fitness. By offering a choice of specializations, we are responding to the educational needs of those adepts of the dietetics profession who do not feel predisposed to work with patients in a medical context, but wish to deal with dietary counseling addressed to healthy people with special nutritional needs related to their lifestyles.

We distinguish two educational paths in our first-cycle programme: Clinical Dietetics and Nutrition in Sports and Fitness, which offer the development and detailing of practical skills and knowledge in dietotherapy, clinical dietetics and clinical nutrition, respectively, as well as the theoretical foundations of sports and fitness, sports and health training and nutrition in specific sports and fitness disciplines.

In our educational concept, medical-clinical knowledge and competencies will be complemented by knowledge and competencies in food science and nutrition, including food technology, food chemistry and biochemistry, food microbiology, as well as the fundamentals of human nutrition in health at different stages of the life cycle.
