Clinical Nutrition

During the second or third year of training, each fellow participates in a one-month nutrition elective on the inpatient nutrition service at BMC. The fellow will round with the Nutrition Service, directed by Dr. Caroline Apovian, three times per week, participate in all the Nutrition conferences during the month, and attend the Obesity and Weight Management Clinic one afternoon each week. In addition to this intensive experience, the fellow will have didactic conferences on selected nutrition topics, including nutritional issues surronding colon cancer, liver disease, and inflammatory bowel diseases.
