(NIM) online nutrition education curriculum and provide students with evidence-based clinical nutrition education.

The course directors will provide instruction to students regarding the way in which the NIM website is accessed

and navigated. Because this course is “portable, it is intended to provide students with a valuable educational

experience during one of the three months of the senior year in which residency interviews are most numerous.

Students may therefore, complete their assigned courses from any Internet accessible location. Students will be

assigned 12 courses from the NIM curriculum, customized to provide nutritional education important in the field of
