The pre-clinical curriculum addresses nutritional topics mainly from a biochemical or epidemiological perspective. This curriculum is intended to address nutrition from a more in-depth, clinical perspective through a series of modules. Each module is composed of a pre-classroom online lesson, one journal article and a quiz. Following this preparation, students will start the class with a case study. Each case study employs principles learned in the preceding coursework and is comprised of a realistic patient. Students will then work together in teams and do real-time research to devise a patient-centered, evidence-based plan as part of the case based discussions. Then, each student team will cook pre-determined recipes and present it to their colleagues. With the conclusion of cooking, the recipes and cases are discussed over a shared meal. There will also be a required experimental learning project that students propose and complete during the elective. This project is intended to enhance students' recognition of the socio-economic and cultural context within which patients make decisions about their health.
Students should be able to demonstrate knowledge of culinary principles, practice applying culinary medicine principles to patient-centered scenarios, and describe an aspect of the socio-economic and/or cultural context of dietary choices in the local community.
