Nutrition Education for Medical Students

Resources for Incorporating Nutrition in Medicine

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is committed to preparing next-generation physicians and other health care professionals with plant-based resources to change the future of patient care. The Physicians Committee offers plant-based education tools to medical and nursing students to increase awareness of nutrition education in educational institutions. 

Lunch and Learns for Medical and Nursing Schools

We offer Lunch and Learns in medical and nursing schools across the United States and worldwide to bring plant-based education to your institution. The most common lecture topics include diabetes prevention and treatment, heart disease, hypertension, obesity, and food addiction. The Physicians Committee covers any costs, including honorarium and travel costs for the physician or dietitian expert, literature shipment, and catering for the event.
