The T1/T2 course will teach basic culinary skills including fundamental dietary and nutrition knowledge. There is a total of eight (8) 3-hour cooking classes. Lessons will be keyed to both the basic science curriculum (biochemistry, physiology, etc.) while linking concepts learned to the practical clinical skills needed for the patient physician discussion about the importance of dietary and lifestyle change.
Students will be expected to watch a 15-20 minute PowerPoint presentation and take a short quiz prior to coming to class. Class time is spent doing 2 hours of hands on cooking, tasting, and dialogue tied with case studies and questions relevant to the lessons. Students are expected to take all 8 lessons during the spring or fall of the first or second year. By signing up for this elective, you are committing to taking all 8 classes and doing all coursework.
All 8 classes will be offered in spring and fall and open to first and second year medical students.
