Enrichment: Clinical, Research, and Didactic Training

Investigational Weight Management Clinic
The NORC’s clinical demonstration unit began to include rotations for medical students, residents, endocrinology fellows, and dietetic interns in the 2010-2011 academic year. These rotations provide a thorough orientation to obesity management, the approach to care advocated by the clinic, and the importance of multi-disciplinary care for obese individuals. The clinic offers didactic and practical training on the latest research findings and treatment approaches for obese adults.
Research Opportunities and Mentorship
The NORC provides a diverse pool of faculty mentors with expertise in the continuum of nutrition and obesity research from the molecular to clinical and population levels. Junior faculty are offered guidance via consultation services the NORC provides and the opportunity for research support through the Pilot and Feasibility Grants program. NORC members also provide an interdisciplinary team that MS and PhD students from the Nutritional Sciences, Kinesiology, Biomedical Sciences, Endocrinology, and other programs can work with to enhance their experience in research methods, techniques, and application.
Didactic Training
The research and training missions of the NORC are supported by a vast array of coursework provided across many Schools at the University of Michigan. The multitude of learning opportunities demonstrates the University’s commitment to training future leaders in nutrition and obesity research, clinical practice, community and political applications.

A list of relevant courses offered across the University will be available soon.
