Clinical Training at BCNH
The Functional Medicine Approach
BCNH Clinical Training is comprehensive, thorough and based on Functional Medicine, with a strong emphasis on a holistic, albeit evidence-based approach.
Functional Medicine training uses an evidence-based approach and assesses patients based on various signs and symptoms, functional and medical test results and in response to specific dietary interventions, lifestyle changes, and dietary supplements.
The Most Comprehensive Clinical Training on the Market
Our dedicated clinical modules will ensure you have all the skills required to embark on a successful career in nutritional therapy (NT) immediately following your graduation.
The CNHC core curriculum requires a minimum of 15 case studies to be completed, 3 of which must be supervised and include initial and follow up client appointments.
Students on our BSc (Hons) programme will complete approximately 35 case studies, of which 31 are fictional clinical seminar case studies, and 4 supervised live case studies, including initial and follow up client appointments, all within a safe, supervised, teaching environment.
All case studies include written work to provide you with the opportunity to put your in-depth technical knowledge into practice, and to demonstrate a critical and evidence-based approach to designing the interventions, as well as adherence and awareness of all relevant codes of professional practice and safety issues.
You will be also taught how to communicate with the medical profession in order to establish a mutually rewarding relationship. All students must write a minimum of three referral letters to a GP or other medical professionals. Each letter is approved and signed off by the college first.
Therefore, by the time you graduate you will have the confidence to translate complex technical understanding into practical, achievable, client-focused recommendations.
You will be able to embark on a successful career that comes from in-depth technical knowledge as well as thorough clinical training.
All client consultations can be conducted via video-conferencing software.
A Clinical Supervisor will observe the consultation live and guide you as necessary.
BCNH Approach to Supplementation
At BCNH we treat supplements with respect.
We ensure that all supplement recommendations are within the Government recommendation limits; we have designed a BCNH Supplement Calculations Sheet showing key information such as the UK Recommended Nutrient Intake (RNI) & Safe Upper Limits (SUL), to ensure safe supplementation.
We also stress that supplements are not a substitute for healthy eating and must not replace any prescribed medications.
We look forward to hearing from you!
