Course
Nutritional Medicine MSc

I qualified as a pharmacist in 1995 and initially practised community pharmacy before becoming a primary care pharmacist advising GPs on prescribing in Surrey. I've always had a keen interest in modifiable risk factors for disease, especially diet.

I've found the course to be both stimulating and challenging. The national and international speakers are experts in their field, and gave highly engaging and cutting-edge lectures. The diversity of healthcare backgrounds amongst students, which included dietitians, doctors, nurses, nutritional therapists and pharmacists, made for interesting discussions both in and out of lectures.

"The course gave me a solid scientific basis to make future recommendations on how to use of nutrition to both prevent and treat disease."

Whilst it was hard work juggling lectures and essays, around my family and work life, the course was so enjoyable that it was worth the effort.

My own experience is that pharmacists are often strong advocates of ‘prevention is better than cure’ and the course gave me a solid scientific basis to make future recommendations on how to use of nutrition to both prevent and treat disease.

As a result of studying nutritional medicine, my career has changed direction and I now work as a consultant pharmacist and medical writer. This includes writing articles about nutrition for pharmacy publications.
