Culinary Medicine Labs
One of NOSM U’s Academic Principles is interprofessionalism where learners in all of NOSM U’s programs learn with, from and about each other as developing and practicing health care professionals.
In 2017-18, NODIP piloted Culinary Medicine Labs which blends the art of food and cooking with the science of medicine. Through the support of RD facilitators and dietetic interns the pilot was a success. It has been expanded on both NOSM campuses with efforts to formally integrate this curriculum into the UME Program.
To our knowledge, NODIP is the first Canadian internship program to include dietetic interns in the CML model of medical education training. Hear more about the benefits from our interns and medical students (see video here).
