Advanced Nutrition Programmes

The advanced nutrition training programme module is designed to provide experience in an Integrated Severe Intestinal Failure and Intestinal Transplant Centre. 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 posts are primarily aimed at trainees in their ST6 year.

The advanced nutrition syllabus can be found on pages 112 – 126 of the 2010 Gastroenterology curriculum, which can be found on the JRCPTB website here.

There are 4 linked posts rotating through the following centres. 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.
