2. Integrated Learning:

How different are we?

Traditional medical knowledge on food, which forms a cultural and geographical link to client diets is not taught during the BSc course or internship. Yet, given that clients and patients are pluralist in their choices, it was observed that TDU’s expertise in offering courses that combine Ayurvedic and modern nutrition could be advantageous. The curriculum is designed to be immersive, design diets, and interact one-on-one with

physicians. Participants will receive introductory textbooks and earn one credit upon completion. This course will be offered by TDU in collaboration with the I-AIM Healthcare - a unique set up that combines university training with practical experience at the hospital.
