The Nutrition Project has developed, implemented and evaluated
a web-based nutrition curriculum that vertically integrates nutrition
concepts and principles into both the preclinical and clinical curriculum.
Nutrition content is integrated for 5 academic quarters into an
overarching course called Practice of Meddicine. For more information
in Practice of Medicine.
In keeping with Stanford's curricular flexibility, the courses provide
a minimum foundation in concepts and principles of nutrition and
dietetics that can be individually expanded by giving the students
the option to pursue links to material in existing Stanford courses,
links to relevant external web sites, and lists of additional learning
resources. A key component of the design is that the course can be
completed entirely in self-study mode.
