Scope of the Course

“The Doctor of the future will never understand disease until he understands the makeup of food” Hippocrates (Father of modern medicine). Food is a prerequisite of Nutrition. Nutrition science, an ever-expanding subject with multidisciplinary roots is vitally important for the physical, mental and social well being of all people.

In India

Nutrition jobs in India exit most in the health and hospital sectors. Nutritionists or Dietitians get placements in leading hospitals, hotels and catteries in important Indian Cities. Health resorts, wellness spas and fitness centers appoint dietitians for their team and guest. Qualified Nutritionists are mostly in demand in the health industry and State Hospitals, renowned nursing homes. Government job opportunities include project officers, ICDS-CDPO, anganwadi workers, diabetes educators, dietitians, quality assurance officers, nutritionist, food analyst, research assistant, health educators.

Scope Abroad

Candidates successfully completed nutrition courses have wider placement opportunities. Outside India, sports academies exist in most European and North American cities. These Sports Institutes are provided with doctors, Nurses, medical assistants and DIETITIANS. Sports Institutes apart, opportunities for nutritionists and Dietitians are always there in the medical and hospital sectors.
