Our Healthcare Practitioner Courses

We currently offer 7 courses for Medics and Healthcare Professionals. Courses can be purchased individually or as a package. On completion of each course you will receive a completion certificate suitable for Continuing Professional  Development (CPD). We recommend the course ‘Metabolic Health’ be studied initially as it contains learnings in respect of the basis of healthy eating that is the foundation for all other courses. 

After studying the course ‘Metabolic Health’ you may study the remaining courses in any order. If you study all 7 courses and the Diploma Assessment within 12 months you will be awarded the certification ‘Nutrition for Medics, Diploma in Applied Nutrition’.

“Currently there is no formal medical training on the impact of nutrition on health which means doctors are not empowered to treat patients with diet and lifestyle related diseases which are causing tremendous harm to their health.”

"Sano's CPD accredited online nutrition diploma is delightfully evidence based, practical and I've personally found what I learnt life changing for my family as well as invaluable for enhancing patient care. I highly recommend this diploma to medics as it's a brilliant refresher of biomedical science (that we learnt many moons ago!) plus really interesting new information that can be applied to patient care "
