Description

This is a residential course that provides hands-on experience in doing a nutritionally focused physical exam. Assessment is critical to good care. Use of a nutrition based physical provides yet another assessment tool for the astute clinician, providing objective methods to assess nutrient insufficiencies and excesses of macronutrients, micronutrients, and fluid status. Students will practice taking vital signs and anthropometrics and will examine eyes, skin, nails, hair, and demeanor to look for signs of nutritional status and hydration.
