Welcome to the Southampton Nutritank page. We are part of the national society, Nutritank (https://nutritank.com) which aims to empower the next generation of doctors in knowing how to advise their patients on nutrition and lifestyle.

 

Collectively, we do not feel that we get enough education and experience in understanding the complexities of nutrition, nor applying it to practice. With chronic diseases more prevalent than ever, and the known importance of nutrition and lifestyle in preventing and managing this, we feel that this has never been more important. 

We are here to help you feel more competent and confident in understanding nutrition and having conversations about nutrition and lifestyle with your future patients. Whether you are an aspiring GP, gastroenterologist, dermatologist or neurosurgeon, nutrition matters. 

All years are welcome and all years will benefit no matter your background. 

Our aims:

  • Educate about the importance of nutrition, in all medical specialties
  • Enable students to be confident in talking to patients about nutrition
  • Provide certificates to help you boost your portfolio
  • Promote awareness amongst the Faculty of Medicine regarding the importance of nutrition, lobbying for more training in the curriculum

The society is completely free so sign up via SUSU and join our mailing list to hear about our events: https://forms.gle/DWfHi2DwC8adHYtVA

Follow our social media (Facebook, Instagram) we will post “nutribites”, socials and educational events there too.

We look forward to seeing you all soon!
