Advanced Nutrition Training posts 2016
These ATPs are approved for advanced training in Clinical Nutrition, with dedicated experience in intestinal failure and small bowel transplant units, with a view to subspecialty accreditation providing other requirements are met. The advanced nutrition programme module is designed to provide additional training in nutrition, including experience in a Level 3/4 intestinal failure centre and transplantation. The advanced curriculum aims to provide trainees with an interest in nutrition, the skills to take the lead role in nutritional support but also care for patients in a level 3 or 4 IF/HPN unit. The advanced nutrition syllabus can be found on pages 112 – 126 of the 2010 Gastroenterology curriculum, which can be found on the JRCPTB website. There are 4 linked posts rotating through the following centres (See document below). It is encouraged that trainees rotate through both posts, but the centres are open to discussion if a trainee wishes to stay in one centre for 12 months.
