This MSc focuses on the international problems of over-nutrition and under-nutrition, of children and adults who are stunted because they are under-nourished, or are gaining weight and find it difficult to stop in an obesogenic environment or are losing weight because of critical or chronic illness. This applies to developed nations and those undergoing rapid change. The programme offers specialised training in the clinical and scientific basis of malnutrition, and therapeutic approaches in the hospital, community and educational setting. What and how will I learn? The programme focuses on periods of the life-cycle when nutrition is particularly important acute illness, trauma, surgery or malignancy and chronic conditions in which disease, nutrition and treatment interact. The aetiology, pathophysiology and epidemiology of obesity will be explored alongside all approaches currently being used in its treatment. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of six core courses (90 credits), two optional courses (30 credits) and a research dissertation (60 credits). A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months) is offered. Core Modules Fundamentals of Nutrition and Metabolism Disease-related Malnutrition Experimental Design and Research Methods Practical Nutritional Assessment Therapeutic Aspects of Clinical Nutrition Nutrition and Public Health Dissertationreport All MSc students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 15,000 words or a manuscript ready for submission to a relevant peer-reviewed journal. Options Malnutrition in the Community Disease and Disordered Eating Further details available on subject website: http:www.ucl.ac.uksilvamedicineteachingpgMSc_Clinical_Public_Health_Nutrition The programme is delivered through a combination of seminars, lectures, laboratory work, and practicals.

The Centre for Gastroenterology and Clinical Nutrition is part of the UCL Partners Academic Health Science Programme in London and a part also of the NIHR-funded Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre hosted jointly by UCL and University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. A recent external audit placed the joint Gastroenterology Hepatology academic grouping at UCL tenth in the world for these disciplines, and top in Europe. Members are active contributors to the ESPEN life-long learning project. It is one of nine centres in Europe to be part of the EU partnership for nutrition education, and students benefit from the expertise of the clinicians and scientists who teach on this MSc. Students develop theoretical knowledge and understanding and practical skills in research methodology, including statistical methods applied to medical research, metabolism and physiology which underlies obesity and disease-related malnutrition throughout the life-cycle, optimum nutritional treatments for patients and the ethics and governance of applied health research. Your future career This MSc is particularly suitable for candidates who wish to pursue a life-long career in the field of cutting edge translational research and the practice of nutrition therapy in the health services of the UK or other countries or in the clinical nutrition industry. It is envisaged that this programme will provide an ideal foundation for graduates who wish subsequently to undertake a PhD within UCL or elsewhere. Whilst this MSc does not lead to registration to practice as a Dietician, Nutrition Society accreditation will be sought.
